Voice

  • You either have the active voice or passive voice.
  •  

  • The active voice is the most common. It expresses the action of a verb directly linking it to the person or thing carrying out the action.
     
    E.g The police hit the rioter. (=ACTIVE)
     
    police = thing carrying out the action/subject
     
    hit = action/verb
     
    rioter = object
  •  

  • The passive voice changes the focus of the sentence by re-ordering the elements.
     
    The subject is acted upon the verb.
     
    E.g The rioter was hit by the police. (=PASSIVE)
     
    rioter = in the active voice this is the object, but in the passive voice this becomes the subject and is emphasised more
     
    hit = passive verb
     
    by the police = thing doing the action
     

Comparisons of active and passive

     

  • Mum cleans my bedroom every day. (=ACTIVE)
  • My bedroom is cleaned by mum every day. (=PASSIVE)
  •  

  • Thomas ate fish and chips for dinner. (=ACTIVE)
  • At dinner, fish and chips were eaten by Thomas. (=PASSIVE)

The passive is –

 

Present simple Am/is/are (not) Past participle
Past simple Was/were (not) Past participle

Passive + by

She was pushed off her bike by a stranger.
