Interested in Language
I've written the following sentence in MS Word
"There is one directory per client, thus nine additional directories were created"
Now MS Word states that the words "were created" are incorrect as it detects it as "Passive voice" and suggest that I reverse them, but what exactly does it mean by that?
This is one grammar error, I guess one can call it like that, that always drives me nuts and I've been unable to get a good understanding on what exactly does it mean.
Would appreciate any assistance with this.
In my opinion, the comma splice makes it incorrect.
Word tries to encourage the active voice by pointing out the passive, but there is nothing inherently incorrect about it.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
