Voice – Introduction

Voice

Two types of voice

  • Active voice: active voice expresses a sentence as a subject that acts upon its verb.

               Sub + transitive verb + obj.  (A verb that has an object is called a transitive verb).

He reads a novel.

Read is a transitive verb because an object is used after a verb.

Sub + intransitive verb.   (A verb that doesn’t have an object is called an intransitive verb.)

He reads.        

 Read is an intransitive verb in this sentence which is used without an object. Passive cannot be made from an intransitive verb.

  • Passive voice: passive voice is a form of a verb that expresses object gets affected by the verb. In passive voice; priority is given to the object.

Passive is only made of a transitive verb.

For examples:

I have been sent to Dubai.

You were told.

He has been selected.

Rachel has been beaten by his friend.

Note: I, You, he and Rachit are objects in the above sentences. Actions are performed on objects. Objects get affected here. That’s why passive sentences are very important to express the statements.

Let’s see how to make passive voice:

Transitive verb and form of “to be” are very required to make passive sentences.

Object + to be + past participle/action III form (m.v.3) + by subject.

The verb ‘to be’

TensesForms of ‘to be’
Modals- (can, could, may, might, should, ought to, must would etc)  infinitive (is to/am to/are to/was to/were to, has to/have to/had to/ will have to etc future indefinite (will/shall)Be Object + can/could/may/might/should/ought to/must/would/is to/am to/are to/was to/were to/has to/have to/ had to/ will have to + be + past participle etc.  
Present indefinite (do/does)Is, are, am Object + is/are/am + action III form + by subject
Past indefinite(did)Was, were Object + was/were + action III + by subject
Perfect(present- has/have, past- had  & future-will have/shall haveBeen Object + has/have/ had/ will have/ shall have + been + past participle + by subject
Present continuous (is/are/am)  past continuous(was/were), participle and gerundBeing Object + is/are/am/was/were + being + past participle Participle:  being + past participle

 The objective case will be changed into a subjective case.
