38 THE PASSIVE VOICE - is used when the speaker is more interested in the action than in the person(s) doing the action: The streets are swept every day. The gates will be closed this evening. - is used when we either do not know who the doer of the action is, or it is of little or no importance: This castle was built in the 18th century. My car has been crashed. - is used far more often in English than in some other languages (in French it is “on”, in German “man” and in Croatian, the passive voice is often replaced by reflexive verbs), - is more usually found in written language than in speech, particularly in scientific and technical writing to convey information and to develop logical arguments.
39 The first step toward the passive would be converting active into passive. Such exercises are useful for practical purposes, but the process is essentially an artificial one. Nevertheless, it will teach us how to form the passive. The passive tenses are made by putting the verb TO BE into the required tense (the rules for the use of passive tenses are the same as those for the active) and adding the Past Participle of the main verb. The object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive one: They make these suits in Italy. When did they produce the first video recorders? They told us to stop talking. Has anyone corrected the mistakes? They are making a new road here. These suits are made in Italy. When were the first video recorders produced? We were told to stop talking. Have the mistakes been corrected? A new road is being made here.
40 Defectives and modals (can, must, may, should..) are followed by BE and the past participle: They must take the luggage to the check-in desk. Somebody can easily mend this door. They will have to operate on him tomorrow. Nobody can repair the broken vase. People should cut down that tree. Verbs which cannot be passive: become, happen, have (=own), lack, resemble, seem, stay, suit (=be right for). Verbs which can be passive: believe, contain, include, intend, know, like, love, mean, need, owe, own, understand, want. The agent (the doer of the action), if required, is introduced at the end of the sentence with BY. The luggage must be taken to the check-in desk. This door can easily be mended. He will have to be operated on tomorrow. The broken vase cannot be repaired. That tree should be cut down.
41 PUT THE FOLLOWING SENTENCES INTO THE PASSIVE VOICE: 1. Boys play football all over the world. Football is played all over the world. 2. She is just washing your pullover. Your pullover is just being washed. 3. They had to write the report yesterday. The report had to be written yesterday. 4. You will take it to the cleaner's. It will be taken to the cleaner’s. 5. They have repaired her steering wheel. Her steering wheel has been repaired. 6. She can serve dinner at 6 p.m. Dinner can be served at 6 p.m. 7. Her attitude shocked me. (agent) I was shocked by her attitude.
42 8. Someone must teach that boy a lesson! That boy must be taught a lesson! 9. When will they paint the house? When will the house be painted? 10. He hasn’t painted the house since they built it ten years ago. (two passives) The house hasn’t been painted since it was built ten years ago. 11. Why did they send him to prison? Why was he sent to prison? 12. Haven’t they promised you a rise in salary? Haven’t you been promised a rise in salary? Hasn’t a rise in salary been promised to you? 13.
