The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Talented \Tal"ent*ed\, a. Furnished with talents; possessing skill or talent; mentally gifted. --Abp. Abbot (1663). [1913 Webster] Note: This word has been strongly objected to by Coleridge and some other critics, but, as it would seem, upon not very good grounds, as the use of talent or talents to signify mental ability, although at first merely metaphorical, is now fully established, and talented, as a formative, is just as analogical and legitimate as gifted, bigoted, moneyed, landed, lilied, honeyed, and numerous other adjectives having a participal form, but derived directly from nouns and not from verbs. [1913 Webster]
