ACTIVE / PASSIVE OVERVIEW 16
In the English language there are several grammatical resources used in sentences, one of them are the voices which can be active or passive. When we talk about asset we refer to something that produces an effect, and when we talk about liability we refer to something that lies dormant letting things happen without your intervention.
Similarly, in a sentence can present the passive voice, this appears in the nominative-accusative languages, and in it the verb has a subject suffering from the action, ie, it is a subject patient, and do not realize it, executes or controls, as in the active voice. In other words we can say that the active voice is where the action of the verb falls on the object. The difference between the active voice and the passive voice is not merely formal. It is also a difference in meaning: in the active sentence, the subject of the sentence is responsible for the action; in the passive sentence, the subject of the sentence receives the effects of the action.
The active voice appears in the field of grammar and is linked to a form of conjugate verbs. Also known as direct voice, the active voice expresses a subject agent who executes an action.
It was also said that a sentence is in active voice when the significance of the word is produced by the person to whom one is grammatical concerns:
(Pedro de Mendoza founded in Buenos Aires)
In this mode, the prayer expresses that a subject performs an action and that action is received by the object.
Subject --> action --> Object
Is the type of prayer that we use more frequently in all tenses. In the following prayers, the action of sweep is performed by Julia and lies in the street. And we can express it in different tenses.
Present : Julia sweeps the Street.
Past: Julia swept the street.
Future: Julia will sweep the street.
Future: Julia is going to sweep the street.
Present Continuous: Julia is sweeping the Street.
Past continuous: Julia was sweeping the Street.
Continuous future: Julia will be sweeping the Street.
Present Perfect: Julia has swept the street.
Past Perfect: Julia had swept the street.
Future perfect: Julia will have swept the street.
Present Perfect Continuous: Julia has been sweeping the street.
Past Perfect Continuous: Julia had been sweeping the street.
Future Perfect Continuous: Julia will have been sweeping the street.
As we can see in every prayer we have a subject that acts: Julia, and an object that receives its action: the street. The action it performs is expressed in the different tenses.
In the case of simple times (present, past and future), uses the conjugation simple corresponding to each of the times.
In the case of the times perfect, uses the basic structure of each one of them, always using have in the corresponding time, more the participle of the active verb (you have swept, had swept, will have swept).
For the rest of the continuous times, with the active voice is always uses the shape of the gerundio (verb ending in -ing.
The active voice also use it when we express an action performed by the subject, but without indicating their object:
The car runs.
The flower will blow.
The dog barked.
We also use the active voice with the modal verbs to indicate that someone can or must perform an action. In these cases the word is also used in their conjugations simple of present, past, or future:
You must study
Mary could won the race.
We may achieve the goal.
They can arrive on time.

The Passive Voice
The passive voice is a construction or verbal conjugation in some languages for which there is the subject as passive (subject patient), while the action executed by the verb is played by a snap-in (agent plug-in) and not by the subject agent of the verb in active voice. The passive voice converts to a transitive verb in a verb intransitivo with only one main argument as possible (the agent when it is expressed through an attachment marked with case oblique or prepositional).
Is known as grammatical voice to the category that is associated with the word and that alludes to the semantic link that maintains with the object and with the subject. According to the voice grammar, the subject is patient or agent according to receive or run the action.

The house was built in 1975.
My wallet has been stolen. The room will be cleaned while we are out.
Uses of the Passive Voice
We use the passive voice when we do not know who has performed the action.
To civilian has been killed.
The car was stolen.
We use the passive voice when we want to give more importance to what happened, that who performed the action or when we do not want to say who was made.
The letter was delivered yesterday.
A mistake was made.
Note: we cannot use the passive voice with verbs intransitivos as "die", "arrive" or "Go". Intransitivos verbs are verbs which do not bear a direct object.
To pass a sentence in the active voice to passive voice, the direct subject of prayer active (the testimonies) becomes the subject of the passive.
The passive voice of process shape with the corresponding shape of being, while the passive state shape with BE. The main verb (collect) is included in the passive sentence as variable participle, agreeing in gender and number with the noun (collected/to/os/ACE).
The subject of the active prayer can be included as a complement in the passive sentence preceded by the preposition by, but in the passive state will not appear.

"The passive voice in English is generally used in written records, in scientific articles and technical documents, but also in newspapers or other formal documents.
Normally we focus on agents that starring the actions, however, the passive voice allows us to speak of objects, processes or people who are passive subjects of actions undertaken by other people, and in this way give prominence in our speech".

It can be noted that even if the active voice is easier and clearer to many people, does not mean that the passive must be put aside.
The active voice and the passive voice are two ways of presenting the same situation focusing it from different perspectives. In the case of the active voice, we want the person responsible for the action (the agent), while in the passive voice we want the patient or the result of this action. So each person depend on voice use but most important is to have clear the grammatical structure of each sentence.
