aux:pass: passive auxiliary

A passive auxiliary of a clause is a non-main verb of the clause which contains the passive information. In French, only the verb être can be a passive auxiliary.

Kennedy fut assassiné \n Kennedy was murdered
aux:pass(assassiné, fut)

Other auxiliaries associated with the same main verb are not labeled aux:pass but aux or aux:tense since they do not themselves indicate passive voice.

Kennedy a été assassiné \n Kennedy has been murdered
aux:pass(assassiné, été)
aux(assassiné, a)

aux:pass in other languages: [cs] [de] [en] [es] [fi] [fr] [gd] [gsw] [it] [no] [pa] [pt] [qpm] [ro] [ru] [sv] [u] [vi] [yue] [zh]
