  • What is the passive voice?
    In a passive sentence, the action is ‘done’ to the subject. The effect can be more formal than an active sentence.

What is passive voice?

The passive voice is when the object and verb (or action) is emphasised in a sentence over the subject. The subject is not performing the verb in the passive voice, but is rather being acted upon by it.

When the subject is emphasised, this is the active voice.

Passive voice examples

  • The book was read by the pupil.
  • The meal was being eaten by the whole family.
  • The wall will be painted by Susan.
  • The essay had not yet been written.
