Transcript of Verb Tense
Trent Hart Passive Voice: The voice used to indicate that grammatical subject of the verb is the recipient (not the source) of the action denoted by the verb. HAD Active Voice: The voice used to indicate that the grammatical
subject of the verb is performing the action
or causing the happening denoted by the verb. Examples of Passive and Active Voice: The ball was thrown by the boy. The boy threw the ball. The town was destroyed by fire. Fire destroyed the town. Cheese was liked by Sara. Sara likes cheese. Key Words: be, is, are, a, was, were, has been, have been, will be, being, by [Had+Past participle] The past perfect expresses the idea that something occurred before another action in the past. It can also show that something happened before a specific time in the past. Example: I have never seen such a beautitful beach before I went to Venice. ... small With non- continuous uses of
mixed verbs, we use the past perfect to show that something started in the past and continued up to another action in the past. Example:
We had that car for ten years before it broke down. Overuse of "had"
Unlike the present perfect, it is possible to use specific time words or phrases with the past perfect. Although, this is not possible it's not necessary. Had is considered as a passive voice , and you want to use active voice in your essay. Example:
If John had worked harder he would've gotten a better pay.
If john worked harder he would've gotten a better pay. CHUBBY
