  Article:   THE PASSIVE IN TECHNICAL AND SCIENTIFIC WRITING.

Authors:  ANA-MARIA IUGA.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Almost every discussion of technical or scientific style mentions the passive voice, usually as a stylistic evil to avoid. I have selected five kinds of passive structures for discussion here. Since I believe that the bias of the technical writing teacher is toward avoiding the passive voice, I have concentrated on the arguments that support the use of each of these five structures.
