A diferencia de la Voz Pasiva Personal, donde el objeto directo de la oracin

activa pasa a ocupar el lugar de sujeto en la oracin pasiva -para lo cual es


necesario un verbo transitivo-, en la Voz Pasiva Impersonal, al utilizar verbos
intransitivos como accin principal, no existe objeto que pueda cumplir esa
funcin y es necesario seguir la siguiente estructura:
SUJETO

VERBO TO BE

PASADO PARTICIPIO

Veamos algunos ejemplos:


It is said

Se dice

It is known

Se sabe

It is supposed

Se supone

It is considered

Se considera

It is reported

Se informa

It is thought

Se piensa

It is decided

Se decide

Ahora veamos ejemplos concretos sobre su desarrollo:


People believe that the strike will continue for a week.
It is believed that the strike will continue for a week.The police reported that there
was a bomb on the plane.
It was reported that there was a bomb on the plane.
Tambin es preciso mencionar que en muchas ocasiones una tercera
construccin es posible colocando el sujeto de la oracin subordinada al
comienzo de la oracin; el verbo de percepcin en voz pasiva y el resto de
la frase se aade utilizando el infinitivo del verbo precedido por la partcula
TO, teniendo en cuenta que algunos verbos auxiliares y THAT no se
colocan:

He says that the Governor had inaugurated the bridge the last year.
It is said that the Governor had inaugurated the bridge the last year.
