Hello. My name is Aislinn, and I am a grammar geek. I was that strange kid in the back of English class who diagrammed sentences for enjoyment (in those days they still actually taught diagramming sentences).
Does this mean I know everything there is to know about grammar? No way. But I’ve picked up a thing here and there, which means I have a few pet peeves. One of those is sticking a handle of “passive voice” on something that isn’t passive voice. Today I’d like to show you how to distinguish what is and isn’t passive voice.
