Passive voice redux

Tardily following up Scott Fruehwald’s Writing Tip of the Week on passive voice, I’ve linked below to an article I wrote several years ago that I think complements Scott’s tip.

E-Prime, Briefly: A Lawyer’s Experiment with Writing in E-Prime,” Clarity, No. 48 (December 2002)

E-Prime, Briefly: A Lawyer Writes in E-Prime,” Michigan Bar Journal (July 2007) (slightly edited reprint of Clarity article)

I am always eager to know about passive voice and active voice. We all know that actor never using their original voice in songs. They always using dub voice for that. Its called passive voice.
