Пассивный залог в английском языке, примеры и упражнения

Пассивный залог в английском языке, примеры и упражнения

Функции пассивного залога

Пассивный залог используется для выражения интереса к человеку или объекту, которые испытывают на себе действие, нежели к действию, которое производят этот человеком или объект. Другими словами, предмет интереса или интересующий нас человек становятся подлежащими предложения.


  • The passive voice is used frequently. (= нам интересен пассивный залог, а не тот, кто его использует.)
  • The house was built in 1654. (= мы заинтересованы в самом доме, а не в том, кто его построил.)
  • The road is being repaired. (= нас интересует дорога, а не те, кто её ремонтируют.)
Отметим! Иногда мы используем пассивный залог, потому что не знаем, или нам не важно, кто совершил действие.


  • I noticed that a window had been left open.
  • Every year thousands of people are killed on our roads.
  • All the cookies have been eaten.
  • My car has been stolen!

Пассивный залог часто используется в официальных текстах. Изменение пассивного залога на активный сразу сделает вашу речь понятной и более доступной на письме.

Если мы хотим сказать, что действие совершается кем-то или чем-то, и использовать при этом пассивный залог, мы добавляем предлог by. Когда мы знаем, кто произвёл действие и заинтересованы в этом человеке, всегда лучше использовать активный залог вместо пассивного.
