Meaning of VOICE in English



In grammar , the form of a verb indicating the relation between the participants (subject, object) in a narrated event and the event itself.

English grammar distinguishes between the active voice ("The hunter killed the bear") and the passive voice ("The bear was killed by the hunter"). In the active voice, the emphasis is on the subject of the active verb (the agent performing the action named), whereas the passive voice indicates that the subject receives the action.
