Review of the passive voice

Review of the passive voice

  • Active voice

    • I kissed him.

    • The verb assigns accusative case to the direct object.

  • Passive voice

    • He was kissed (by me).

    • Hypothesis: The verb/past participle can no longer assign accusative case to the direct object, so it must move to subject position to get nominative, and the original subject disappears or appears with by.
