‘Grammar Basics: Active and Passive’ by Barrie England

Barrie England’s latest blog post is titled “Grammar Basics: Active and Passive”.

Barrie says, “The previous posts give a very broad overview of the nature of English grammar, but they omit many important topics. I would urge anyone seeking more information to consult some of the books listed on the References page. However, I will, in this and in subsequent posts, look at some particular grammar topics which, for the sake of simplicity, I have left out of earlier ones. In the first few, I’ll consider some further points about verbs, starting with what are called the Active and the Passive Voice,although not all linguists use the term ‘voice’.”
