Mathieson, Paul – Journal of Pan-Pacific Association of Applied Linguistics, 2017
Though generally under-utilised in spoken English, the passive voice plays a crucial role in formal, written English (Biber et al., 1999). An understanding of how the passive voice operates in English writing is therefore a vital skill for EFL learners in secondary and higher education so that they may be able to both understand and produce fluent…

Using a sequential analysis, this study examines how Japanese learners of…
