Could Russain verds be changed into adjective?and a few questions.

Actually, I'm not really sure how russian verbs work.
As my question,
1.the world "changes"
2."changing" world
3."changed" world
Could Russian verds be changed into adjectives like this?
And These days I saw an example like this:
уютное кафе на улице "с плетеной мебелью"
I don't quite understand the part in " ". Is мебелью is the fifth case of мебель? and does плетеной have anything to do with плести?(I don't know this is a verb or an adjective, tell me please)

    In most cases, a verb can be changed in the way you mentioned.

    1.the world "changes" = мир изменяется
    2."changing" world = изменяющийся мир ('изменяющийся' is rarely used in everyday speech)
    3."changed" world = измененный мир

    Yes, 'мебелью' is the fifth, instrumental, case of the word 'мебель'
    'Плести' = 'wattle', 'плетеный' = 'wattled', 'плетеной' = the fifth case of 'плетеный'


    Yes the word "Плетеный" is formed from "Плести".
    Плести - verb
    Плетеный - adjective

    It happens alot in Russian language!

    for example:

    Ходит - verb
    Ходивший - adjective

    Ест - verb
    Евший - adjective

    Окружить - verb
    Окруженный - adjective

    Изменяет - verb
    Изменивший -adjective.


    Плетёный-is an example of a Russian verbal adjective.

    Yes, "плетёный" is derived from the Russian verb "плести"(что делать? imperfect aspect)
    Verbal adjectives in Russian are only derived from the verbs in the imperfect aspect .
    E.g. fry-fried жарить-жареный, depend- dependent зависеть-зависимый.

    Russian verbal adjectives unlike Russian participles have no prefixes аnd dependent words.
    That's why "поджаренный" ( "под" is a prefix, derived from the verb in the perfect aspect "поджарить") is a perfect participle , "жаренный на сковороде"-"fried in the frying pan" (derived from the verb in the imperfect aspect "жарить" with a dependent word) is an imperfect participle.

    We can only form present and past participles from the Russian verb "изменять"- "change" ("из" is a prefix)-изменяющийся, изменившийся (Active Voice), "изменённый" (Passive Voice).
