  • 1. Passive Voice By Selim BALCI
  • 2. Active - Passive
    • In English, sentences can be in either active or passive voice.
    • In active voice the “doer (subject)” is important. We know the doer.
    • Görkem writes these stories . (Ali is the doer, “stories” is the object)
    • In passive voice we don’t know the “doer” or the “doer” is not important.
    • These stories are read by all the students. (“These stories” is emphasized.)
