The final, brilliant word on passive voice.

“She was killed [by zombies.]” <—- passive

“Zombies killed [by zombies] her.” <—- active

Welp.

Oh my god, best passive voice identification tool ever.

Gonna have to take this to my workshop

oh my god i will remember this

Not Fforde, but as I am a writing paper today and this is revolutionizing my writing, I had to share!

… what is passive voice tho?

It’s a grammar thing. Meaning the person doing an action would go at the end of a sentence, which generally English teachers don’t want. As stated in the first comment, “She was killed by zombies” is passive because the zombies did the killing and they’re at the end of the sentence. “Zombies killed her” is active voice because they are now at the beginning of the sentence. I hope that makes some sense. With that in mind, another example: “You learned grammar!” is active, and “Grammar was learned by you” would be passive. :P
