Hi, I am confused by the usage of "well desserved." Which one of the following sentences is correct (or more common)? 1) She is well deserved to be... 2) She is well-deserved to be... 3) She well deserved to be... It sounds like to me that all of the above are correct. The word "well" is an adverb; that is, 1) and 3) are grammatically correct. Also, well-deserved is a predicative adjective and therefore 2) is correct. Any thoughts? Thanks!
