  1. 1. PES/ENG/XI/048 • This is BetaVersion file. Words-2108 A PUNJAB EDUSAT SOCIETY PRODUCTION SUBJECT ENGLISH CLASS XI MODULE VOICES (Episode 2) Opening Sequence VOICE OVER Remember the two ways a sentence can be expressed---- in ACTIVE VOICE and in PASSIVE VOICE depending on whether the subject of the sentence is doing any action or not. Let us recall a couple of sentences SUPER APPEARS i. Man has made the society—The society has been made by man. ii. The school rules must be followed by the students—The students must follow the school rules. iii. The essay was written by me—I wrote the essay. iv. Who killed the tiger?----By whom was the tiger killed? Cut to ANCHOR Each of the three sentences above have been written in two ways yet they mean the same. We know that they are in two different voices as discussed earlier. Learning Objectives -1-
  2. 2. PES/ENG/XI/048 It is not just to be able to identify the voice of any sentence but we should be able to construct sentences in the two voices on our own. For that we need to know SUPER APPEARS 1. The difference in the structure of the sentences in the two voices. 2. How to change from one voice to the other without changing the meaning of the sentence. Main Content Cut to ANCHOR Many a times we think, that just by changing one or two words in a sentence the voice has changed. But that is not so. Let us look at the table below: SUPER APPEARS Active subject verb object > Cats eat fish. VOICE OVER In the passive voice, the subject receives the action of the verb: SUPER APPEARS Passive subject verb doer/agent < Fish is eaten by cats. VOICE OVER The structure of the passive voice is very simple: -2-
  3. 3. PES/ENG/XI/048 SUPER APPEARS subject + auxiliary verb (be/have) + main verb (past participle) + agent/doer(optional) The main verb is always in its past participle form. Look at these examples: subject auxiliary verb (to main verb (past be) participle) Water is drunk by everyone. 100 are employed by this company. people I am paid in rupees. We are not paid in dollars. Are they paid Cut to ANCHOR So when we are constructing a sentence with the verb in ACTIVE VOICE we have to take care that VOICE OVER SUPER APPEARS That the subject is doing the action AND there is an object. Eg. Sub: I vb: am doing obj: the task. What makes a man? Cut to ANCHOR While writing a sentence with the verb in PASSIVE VOICE the subject is no longer doing the action. It is done by an agent OR the doer of the work is not mentioned. SUPER APPEARS -3-
  4. 4. PES/ENG/XI/048 Eg. i. The clothes have been hung by the maid. ii. The clothes have been hung. (by the maid) In both the cases the subject “clothes” is not doing any work. In i. the work is done by an AGENT/ object. In ii. the work is done by an object who is not mentioned. This becomes important when we change from one voice to another. We have to remember that SUPER APPEARS 1. The meaning of the sentence DOES NOT CHANGE 2. The tense also DOES NOT CHANGE. 3. The SUBJECT of an active sentence becomes the OBJECT of the passive sentence and vice versa. 4. The OBJECT of an active sentence becomes the SUBJECT of the passive sentence and vice versa. 5. The verb of the active voice takes its PAST PARTICIPLE form in passive voice preceded by vb. ‘to BE’ or vb. ‘to HAVE’ in the SAME TENSE as the other sentence. VOICE OVER Let us have a look at the table SUPER APPEARS subject verb object>agent Active Everybody drinks water. Passive Water is drunk by everybody Active Mary had done good work Passive Good work had been done by Mary Active Raj will bring your book Passive Your book will be brought by Raj -4-
  5. 5. PES/ENG/XI/048 Active Somebody has stolen my bag Passive My bag has been stolen ( agent not mentioned) Active (You) raise the curtain Passive Let the curtain be raised (by you) Active Who broke the jug? Passive By whom was(broken) the jug? Passive Rules must be followed ????? Active (All/you/students) must follow rules Cut to ANCHOR So you have seen how verbs can be changed from active to passive and passive to active. But an important point has to be kept in mind. Remember when we change from ACTIVE to PASSIVE SUPER APPEARS The OBJECT of the verb in ACTIVE voice becomes the SUBJECT of the verb in PASSIVE voice. VOICE OVER SUPER APPEARS So only TRANSITIVE VERBS can be changed to PASSIVE voice and not INTRANSITIVE VERBS. WHY? Because INTRANSITIVE VERBS have NO OBJECTS. Let us look at the following sentences: SUPER APPEARS -5-
  6. 6. PES/ENG/XI/048 1. Monica eats rice. 2. Monica eats in the morning. Cut to ANCHOR What is the difference? VOICE OVER SUPER APPEARS 1. Monica eats what? ---Rice 2. Monica eats when? ---in the morning. Cut to ANCHOR As RICE in 1.answers to the question WHAT it is the OBJECT of the verb EATS. In 2. the question put is WHEN and the answer IN THE MORNING is an ADVERBIAL phrase. So it is NOT an OBJECT. So sentence 1.can be changed INTO PASSIVE VOICE SUPER APPEARS Rice is eaten by Monica. Cut to ANCHOR But the second cannot be changed. Try to do it!! Let us do some teasers. Change these sentences to passive. If it cannot be done say NO: (The answers are to come a few seconds later) SUPER APPEARS 1. I am writing a story. Ans. A story is being written by me. -6-
  7. 7. PES/ENG/XI/048 2. The boy will give a speech. Ans. A speech will be given by the boy. 3. Raju talks very fast. Ans. NO 4. Ankit had studied only yesterday. Ans. NO 5. Madhu burnt her fingers. Ans. Madhu’s fingers were burnt by her. 6. We all burnt with shame. Ans. NO Cut to ANCHOR So keep this in mind students that only when a verb in a sentence answers to the question WHAT or WHO only then it has an OBJECT and can be changed to PASSIVE. For the rest they are only ADVERBIAL PHRASES. Let us do a few exercises. SUPER APPEARS Say which is the object in each of the sentences. If there is no object say NO: ( ans.to appear a few seconds after the question) 1. I bought three books yesterday. A. three books. 2. Ritesh will throw a party next week. A. a party. 3. Montu left early in the morning. A. NO 4. The man paid the fine. A. the fine. 5. Prateek is an active boy. A. NO (Always remember that the word or group of words which comes after any form the verb ‘be’ is never an object, but a complement. 6. She will go by Monday. A. NO -7-
  8. 8. PES/ENG/XI/048 Let us now recall something we had learnt in our junior classes—kinds of sentences. VOICE OVER SUPER APPEARS There are FOUR kinds of sentences. They are: ASSERTIVE—one that makes a statement Eg. The children are playing cricket. INTERROGATIVE—one that asks a question Eg. Who broke this glass? IMPERATIVE—one that gives commands/orders/requests Eg. Hang the culprit (order). Please give me a glass of water (request). EXCLAMATORY—one that expresses a feeling/emotion Eg. What a beautiful sight! Cut to ANCHOR Of these, the first three can have verbs written in ACTIVE or PASSIVE voice after fulfilling the condition of the verb having an OBJECT. Let us try out a few transformations from one voice to another. VOICE OVER SUPER APPEARS ASSERTIVE—ACTIVE: Praveen distributed sweets. PASSIVE: Sweets were distributed by Praveen. INTERROGATIVE—ACTIVE: Who will take the responsibility? PASSIVE: By whom will the responsibility be taken? ACTIVE: Why should the man punish Manu? PASSIVE: Why should Manu be punished by the man? IMPERATIVE—ACTIVE: Raise the curtain. PASSIVE: Let the curtain be raised. ACTIVE: Please allow me a day’s leave. PASSIVE: Please let me be allowed a day’s leave. -8-
  9. 9. PES/ENG/XI/048 Cut to ANCHOR But where is the subject in an imperative sentence? One important and interesting point must be noted in the IMPERATIVE sentence---that apparently the subject IS MISSING. But it definitely is not so. Actually the subject is nothing but second person YOU. So in active voice it is YOU ……….. and in passive voice it is ………. BY YOU, both of which need not be used. So anytime you need to change from one voice to another in IMPERATIVE put YOU and BY YOU appropriately and you will have no problem. There are two ways to change an IMPERATIVE sentence. Look at these sentences SUPER APPEARS . . 1. Shut the door. Let the door be shut. You are ordered to shut the door. 2. Please clean the room. Let the room be cleaned. You are requested to clean the room. Let us tackle some quizzes (ans.to appear a few seconds after the questions) SUPER APPEARS Change from one voice to another: 1. The teacher asked a simple question to the students A. A simple question was asked by the teacher to the students. 2. The money will be returned by Shyam tomorrow. A. Shyam will return the money tomorrow. 3. By whom had the clothes been washed? A. Who had washed the clothes? 4. Can you get an umbrella? A. Can an umbrella be got by you? 5. Call all the men. A. All the men must be called. 6. Please close the windows. A. Please may the windows be closed. -9-
  10. 10. PES/ENG/XI/048 7. Let the room be cleared. A. Clear the room. 8. The room had been arranged. A. Someone/a girl/they had arranged the room. 9. What will be told to Ram? A. What will you/they/she tell Ram? 10. Let the best win. A. Let the match/contest/election be won by the best. Summary Cut to ANCHOR Thus we have seen that the two voices viz. ACTIVE and PASSIVE even though they express the same meaning in a sentence, have their unique characters. Also we have seen the changes that need to be put in when we are transforming one voice to the other. These changes are very important and must be kept in mind when doing the transformation. We will now try out a few exercises: SUPER APPEARS 1. What are the main features of a sentence in ACTIVE VOICE? --The main features of a sentence in ACTIVE VOICE are a. subject b. object c. verb 2. How is a sentence in PASSIVE VOICE different from that of an ACTIVE VOICE? --A sentence in a PASSIVE VOICE has for its subject that which is the object of an ACTIVE VOICE. 3. What are the changes that comes to the verb of a sentence in PASSIVE VOICE ? The verb in PASSIVE VOICE takes its PAST PARTICIPLE form preceded by either verb ‘to be’ or ‘to have’. 4. Change the voice of the following sentences: - 10 -
  11. 11. PES/ENG/XI/048 a. The food has been cooked by my mother----My mother has cooked the food. b. The discipline must be maintained---All/people/students must maintain the discipline. c. How has this dish been prepared?----How has she/the chef prepared this dish? d. May you be blessed---May God/your parents/all bless you. e. Arrest the criminal----The criminal must be arrested / Let the criminal be arrested. f. The exams will be held by next week---The school/board/teacher will hold the exams by next week. NOT Next week will hold the exams. g. Give me the answer---the answer must be given to me. Cut to ANCHOR So we end with VOICES today. Please remember that the correct use of voice in appropriate place makes a writing beautiful. So use the VOICES in the right way.
