To Be Verbs Analyzer

The active voice and passive voice are different grammatical formats of expressing the same idea. For example, The flight was cancelled by the airline is in the passive voice while The airline cancelled the flight is in the active voice. The active voice is more direct, concise and engaging. "To be" verbs, such as "is," "was" and "were" are indicators of the passive voice. Theoretically, a lower amount of "to be" verbs, maybe present in less than 20% of sentences, indicates better writing.
