Passive Voice

I ni ce, @coleman!

With my three recent posts:


How does tense, aspect, voice, and mood apply to Bambara and how are they are marked?

The verb ‘kɛ’ (I wasn’t expecting you to talk about passive voice again with this one… but you hit the nail on the head! :100:)

And one of my older post (because it seems I’m now running into the more complex usages that you mentioned):

Tips when struggling with grammar terms?

And then also seeing passive voice in other ways in the Peace Corps Bambara Language Manual (interestingly enough, I haven’t seen passive voice mentioned concerning transitive verbs :thinking:):


Karamɔgɔ jɔlen don kalanso kɔnɔ.

Kalandenw sεgεnnen tε.

ra (na/la)

Dumuni sigira Fanta fε.

Te wulila.

Ayi furu ma siri fɔlɔ.

Ayi wεri ma ci ne bolo.

Mobili ma ko Musa fε.

I’m requesting an immediate video on passive voice in Bambara? :smile::pray:t5: Due to my recent struggles and failed attempts to gain proper understanding, outside of the AKT Forum, on the Bambara that I’m now encountering.

Make it all make sense! :weary::raised_hands:t5::woman_teacher:t5:
