ActivePassive Voice adapted from a UN C Charlotte Writing Resource Center handout 22602 In grammar quotvoicequot indicates the relationship ofthe subject to the action of the verb quotVoicequot determines if the subject of the sentence is performing or receiving the action of the verb If you use the active voice the emphasis is on the subject or the person doing the action If you use the passive voice the emphasis is on the action itself ACTIVE VOICE The subject performs the action Example Jim subject of the sentence sent action the weekly progress report to the head of marketing In the active voice the emphasis is on the subject Jim PASSIVE VOICE The subject is acted upon Example The weekly progress report subject was sent to the the head of marketing Note in the above example that who sent the report is not indicated In engineering and related fields passive voice focuses on what is done and not who did it The above sentence is an example of quotno subjectquot passive voice ln nontechnical fields sentences written in passive voice may include the subject Example The weekly progress report was sent to the head of marketing by Jim WHICH IS BETTER There has been significant debate about whether active versus passive voice is better Some argue that active voice is easier to read and write easierto understand more interesting and less formal However in engineering and related technical fields passive voice is preferred and assumed It is always wise to check which is the appropriate quotvoicequot given your assignment The best example of passive voice for engineering and related technical fields is illustrated in which of the following sentences choose one a Extensive research was conducted by the team to determine the real problem b The team conducted extensive research to determine the real problem c Extensive research was conducted to determine the real problem d All of the above since none of the sentences are written in either the first or second person voice Options a and b indicate who is doing the research Option c is the best example of passive voice since the subject is not identified Therefore c is the preferred option most commonly used in engineering and related technical fields Again it is an example of quotno subjectquot passive voice
