Passive/help
Message from tanin5 posted on 29-05-2018 at 22:29:57 (D | E | F)
Hello everybody
Please tell me your idea about my question. What is the passive of this sentence? 'She made me wait.'
Thank you.

Hello
you could say: She got me to wait, she had me wait, or in the passive voice, I was made to wait. (by her is unnecessary and would be awkward)

Thank you my friend for your answer.
This verb ( wait) makes me a little confused in passive form! I waited for her. Passive: She was waited!
I think I is also an object for this verb!! I is not waiting( active adj) it has passive adj( waited) !
Am I clear, am I right?
Best regards

Hello
Am I clear ? Not really !
Am I right ? Not really either !

I waited for her. Passive: She was waited for!
There is no point in transforming "I waited for her" into "She was waited for by me" which is awkward and horrible. "She was waited for" could be heard.

I think I is also an object for this verb! No, I is in the subject form, the object form would be me.

I is not waiting( active adj) (waiting is not an adjective but a present participle)
it has passive adj( waited) !(waited is not an adjective but a past participle)
