i do not understand the usage of the word being to express the passive.
When i want to express, that a message will be displayed on the screen of a computer, google translate suggests me this:
Why not this:The message is displayed.
?The message is being displayed.
As the dog is the (poor) object, i would use passive and from my understanding i then would have to writeThe dog is being beaten... ?
The dog is beaten... ?
If this is also wrong, please give me an example, where "being" is used.The dog is being beaten.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
We use progressive and non-progressive forms in the passive just as we do in the active:
That man is beating his dog. - The dog is being beaten.
He beats his dog every day. - The dog is beaten every day.
