past passive voice: how many auxiliaries and how many lexical verbs?
I'm currently trying to analyse the following sentence:
"He had been blown away."
In my analysis I have said that had is an auxiliary, and explained why, and that blown is a lexical verb, again giving an explanation.
I'm just not quite sure for been. On the one hand, it is a participle and not a conjugated form, preceded by an auxiliary, which would make you think it's lexical. On the other hand, it make a passive with the lexical verb "blown" which makes me wonder if it would be an auxiliary after all.
I'll be really grateful if someone can explain this to me!
