Francis' research on Active & Passive Voice

Most sentences have a Subject Verb Object, the sequence is mostly subject > verb > object.

Active Voice:
It is the "normal" voice and the voice used most of the time. The Object receives the action of the verb

When changing from Active Voice to Passive Voice, the Object changes to Subject.

Passive Voice:
It is more uncommon than Active Voice. The Subject receives the action of the verb
