51. Voices of the

Active and

When you know a


INTRO language you know the
sounds of that
language, and you
know how to combine
those sounds into
words. To describe
speech sounds, it is
necessary to know
what an individual
sound is, and how each
sound differs from all
others. We want to
know what these
sounds are, how they
fall into patterns, and
how they change in
different circumstances.
INTRO Voice is a property of a
verb which indicates
whether the subject is
acting or acted upon.
Active voice gives more
emphasis and power to
whatever things
expressed. It is
important, therefore, in
the realm of
expression, to say

As we live in this world,


we cannot deny that
there is comparison in
all aspects of our life.
We often compare
ourselves to others in
terms of material
possessions and
physical attributes.
Thus, in comparing, we
use adjectives. These
adjectives vary as to
the extent of the
comparison. This
lesson teaches the
students on how words
can affect (either
positive or negative) a
persons confidence
and performance.
