I am currently revising an essay that I received feedback from my Japanese teacher about, and am having trouble working out what word she wanted me to use in a particular spot.
The bold word is the one that she wanted me to fix, and the comment that she wrote was "is put". I don't necessarily even need the word itself, so much as a concrete English meaning, as I can't figure out what "is put" is referring to in terms of Japanese meaning.
Incidentally, I am finishing the revision tonight, but even if I submit it, knowing what word fits better would be very helpful.
I have tried to look up "put" in various online dictionaries, but have not found any Japanese verb that sounds right in that context, and the other words that I can think of to replace it with (認められ、受け、視され、思われ) don't have a meaning that resembles "put" enough to be likely to be what she had in mind.
I may be overthinking it, but I would really appreciate guidance towards a better search term or the Japanese word itself (though the latter is less preferable because I don't get a chance to learn as much that way, and it is homework after all).
