Phrasal verbs are idiomatic expressions, combining verbs and prepositions to make new verbs whose meaning is often not obvious from the dictionary definitions of the individual words. They are widely used in both written and spoken English, and new ones are formed all the time as they are a flexible way of creating new terms.

Below are some of the widely used phrasal verbs.

Note 2: Future Progressive PassiveиPerfect Progressive Passiveare unusual and are not normally used.

Note 3: The use of the verb-tenses in the Passive Voice follows the same rules as in the Active Voice.

Changing Active to Passive

Part of speech Subject Verb Object    
Sentence in the Active Voice The group will present the report next week.

STEP 1:move the object to the subject position

The report ...  


STEP 2:change the verb to the passive, making sure that BE takes the same tense as the verb in the active sentence

The report will be presented...  

STEP 3:drop the subject

The report will be presentednext week. (Example of passive voice without the subject)  

ormove it to a position after the verb

The report will be presentedby the group next week. (Example of passive voice with the subject)  

Changing Passive to Active

Part of speech Subject Verb Object    
Sentence in the Passive Voice   The cookie was eaten by John

STEP 1:The original object becomes the subject (the star of the sentence).

John ...  


STEP 2:The BE + -en or (-ed) ending is removed from the active verb. (was eaten). The active verb takes the same tense as BE in the active sentence

John ate...  

STEP 3:The original subject becomes the direct object (the person or thing on which the subject acts).

John ate the cookie.  

Why Use the Passive Voice?

1. When the agent of the action is unknown:

My wallet was stolen last night. (we don’t know who stole the wallet)

2. When the agent is unimportant:

The new students’ centre was completed last week. (the people who built the centre are unnecessary information for the meaning of the sentence)

3. When the agent of the action is obvious from the context:

I was born in March of '55. (Everyone knows that it was my mother who bore me then)

4. To emphasize (put importance on) the recipient (receiver) of the action:

a) Only Jane was injured in the accident; the remainder of the passengers were unhurt.(we want Jane to be the subject of the sentence and to emphasize her importance)

b) Erika was chosen as best student, and of course this made her happy. (the teacher who chose Erika is not what we want to emphasize)

5. To connect ideas in different clauses more clearly:

The music was being played too loud by the students, who were finally asked to turn it down.

6. To make generic statements, announcements, and explanations:

a) Something should be done about the traffic jams in this town.

b) It's said that it's going to rain tonight.(Often, people will say, 'They say that it's going to rain tonight', the ‘they’ being the weatherman.)
