Subject: Re: Richard Mitchell on agents and acts

First, I'd never want to contradict anything Ed Appel has said.

Second, isn't there an agent in each of these passive-voice sentences,
two of them human agents?---

The ball was hit by John.

John was struck by Sam.

The sun was covered by the cloud.

The adverbial phrase doesn't need to be included to make these
assertions sentences, but such truncated, dramatically incomplete
statements will cry out for some kind of formal fulfillment, n'est pas?

Bob Ashley, where are you?

Finally, does anybody know on what day and at what time the Burke
Society business meeting will be held at NCA in Boston?



Ed
