Definisi Passive Voice

Passive voice means “a passive construction occurs when you make the object of an action into the subject of a sentence.

That is, whoever or whatever is performing the action is not the grammatical subject of the sentence.”

Dari definisi di atas dapat disimpulkan bahwa passive voice subjek kalimat tidak melakukan aksi melainkan menerima aksi.

Misalnya dalam Bahasa Indonesia, kata kerja menjadi berawal di-, seperti: disapu, disetir, dimakan, dan sebagainya.

  • Some flowers are planted by my parents.
  • My phone was stolen.
