Past participle adjectives like I'm done, I'm gone, I'm finished, I'm mistaken

Post by rusqb »

Are the phrases like "I'm done, I'm gone, I'm finished, I'm mistaken" exclusive ones? Because there is no passive structure in here, as the normal past participle adjectives have, for instance, "l'm surprised (by smth/smbd)".

If by 'exclusive ones' you mean 'set expressions', yes.
