This unit taught about the basic characteristics modals, passive voice, and phrasal verbs and when it is appropriate to apply them. Modals are added to the beginning of verbs to express a number of ideas, such as obligation, possibility, ability, permission, and advice, adding more meaning to the action taking place. Passive voice is one of two voices the English languages uses. The passive voice places the focus on the action rather than the agent performing the action, thus emphasizing the significance of the action. Phrasal verbs consist of a verb and one or two particles.
