As far as I understood, the -ed ending is primarily used to put a verb into the past tense, or to make a past participle. Of course, the past participle can also be used as an adjective.  But what is the explanation for -ed endings in adjectives such as open-mouthed, or big-bellied, which are not derived from verbs?
