    This looks like homework to me. Also, you can probably find discussions of the passive voice if you take the trouble to look.

    Welcome to the forum, Nuckri. Teachers are welcome to ask questions here.

    At its simplest, we have. Milliband was defeated.

    Here we have Milliband, a noun, the subject of the sentence. was defeated is the predicate, a verb phrase consisting of the past tense of theauxiliary verb BE and the third form (past participle) of the full verb DEFEAT, together making the past (simple) passive form.

    Is that the sort of thing you wanted?

    It would be much worse if a teacher was not aware of a lack of knowledge, or, worse still, was aware of it and did nothing about it. We should welcome teachers who want to plug their gaps, not put them off.

    Re: parsing the passive voice sentences

    That's an opinion. In my opinion a teacher should know about the passive voice or at the very least how to find information about it.

    Re: parsing the passive voice sentences

    One good way of finding information about English is by posting questions here. The whole idea of the forum is to help people.

    Re: parsing the passive voice sentences

    True but, on that basis, why do we answer questions at all? We might as well tell all learners/teachers to go and look at other websites to find answers to their questions.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
