Active Voice to Passive Voice Conversion Software
« on: March 16, 2011, 06:58:25 PM »
It would be cool if you could make a software that converted all the active voice sentences in an article to passive voice sentences, and vice versa. For example:

Active voice: The dog ate the steak

With the software, this would automatically be converted to:

Passive voice: The steak was eaten by the dog.

Others: The steak is being eaten by the dog, The steak is going to get eaten by the dog, The dog eats steak, The dog is eating steak, etc

The purpose of the software would be to quickly and easily create unique content while maintaining readable sentences.

Could be used for turning duplicate content into unique content with ease. Such a technology would be extremely powerful.

The main power of the software is in identifying the main subjects in a sentence, in this case, steak and dog. Also in identifying active and passive voice. The main subjects like steak and dog could easily be replaced with other subjects like meat and cat.

That sounds like a very good idea. I am not sure how it can be accomplished, because I think you'd need a big semantic database for that but maybe there is a way to start small and let it grow with user input...

Much broader usage will be in sentence restucturing. There's already a number of people who are trying this as one can make out from various clues on the net. But it's a bit complicated though not impossible.

That's interesting.  I actually have a corpus for tagging parts of speech, so that's not a problem.  The question is whether or not I can algorithmically determine when words can be reordered in this way.

In addition to active/passive voice, any other ideas as to what kind of word rearrangement could be done?

Thanks!

Phrases of certain kinds can be interchanged. I'm not sure of the technical term for this (maybe adverbial clause?) but examples are:

While I washed the car, my spouse cooked dinner.

My spouse cooked dinner while I washed the car.

After the dishes were done, I ironed the clean clothes.

I ironed the clean clothes after the dishes were done.

Flowers bloom when spring arrives.

Hi Jon and Meg,

Yes. :) I was going to add that as well. Phrases that are behind or between commas like Meg shown can be easily interchanged. Other than that, other examples include:

Jim's dog is really cute.
The dog, which belongs to Jim, is really cute.

The doctor did his very best.
The man, being a doctor by trade, did his very best.

My apple is going to be eaten.
The apple, which belongs to me, is going to be eaten

In other words, phrases without commas can be restructured to have certain words in between commas.

Additionally, other sentence structures that can be changed are also changing the position of adjectives:

The fancy car is going to go out now.
The car that's fancy is going to go out now.

The big dog is eating the steak
The steak was eaten by the big dog
The steak was eaten by the dog that's big.
