Active voice

Active voice?

A sentence can express an Action carried out by a Subject , and the Object on which the Action is performed can also be included .

The concept of active voice appears in the field of grammar and is linked to a way to conjugate verbs. Also known as direct voice , the active voice refers to an agent subject that executes an action. In the case of the passive voice , however, the action is suffered by the subject ( patient subject ).

The active voice is characterized by a specific order of those elements of the sentence:

Active voice: subject + verb + object
For example: My sister bought the cake.
