:D Let me tell you that it is an excellent material. Congratulations for this fantastic idea. Now, we students have got a chance to listen, then, read, and listen again looking and not the texts. I am feeling very happy about your English Programs. Congratulations again, and go ahead, that you are the best ones.

Passive voice #10 (permalink) Wed Feb 11, 2009 8:20 am   Passive voice
 

Excerpt from the article:
"By the time it was bought by my aunt and uncle some two hundred years later it had been owned by a long list of different people whose names are recorded on the title deeds. As it is situated by the sea, it became a favourite place for various members of the family to visit. It also had an added attraction — it was haunted, at least so my uncle said"

I understand the actions of the reader should be in the past tense since it happened in the past. But what i am confused about is the use of present tense : "is situated" "Are recorded" at the same time... When is it ok to use different tenses?

:?
thanks,
kai

Hi Kai,

Since the house has always been situated by the sea and the names have been recorded for a long time, we can use the present tense because both those facts are still true today.

Let me know if this answers your question.
Many thanks,
Torsten
