This page pertains to UD version 2.

Voice: voice

We use Voice for verbs and auxiliaries with two values, Act and Cau.

Act: active voice

The subject of the verb is the doer of the action (agent), the object is affected by the action (patient).

Examples

Cau: causative voice

Causative forms of verbs are classified as a voice category because, when compared to the basic active form, they change the number of participants and their mapping on semantic roles. (See, e.g., the documentation of the METU Sabanci treebank (page 26).)
