Voice: voice

Values: Act Pass

Voice in Modern Greek is a feature of verbs that highlights the role of a certain participant in an event; the highlighted participant is related to the syntactic subject of the verb. So, the active voice relates the “doer” with the subject and the passive voice relates the “affected” with the subject. However, these are strong tendencies only.

All Modern Greek finite verb forms, the infinitive and the participles are tagged for Voice.

Act: active voice

The subject of the verb is the doer or the controller of the event (agent), the object is affected or controlled (patient).


Pass: passive voice

The subject of the verb is affected by the event (patient). The doer (agent) is either unexpressed or is introduced with the preposition από.
