Grammatical voice is the relationship between the action, event or state of the verb and the participants identified by its arguments (subject, object, and so on). Both Spanish and English distinguish 2 voices:
- Active voice
- Passive voice
Active voice describes a clause in which the grammatical subject of the main verb is also the agent of the verb.
Passive voice describes a clause in which the grammatical subject of the verb is the patient, target or undergoer of the action of the main verb.
