What's the difference between a Mood, a Tense and a Voice in English Grammar?

Mood[edit | edit source]

The mood (or mode) of a verb shows the manner in which a statement is made. There are three moods: Indicative, Imperative, and Subjunctive.

Tense[edit | edit source]

There are six tenses in the indicative mood - three simple and three perfect - to show the time of an action - past, present or future.

Voice[edit | edit source]

The Voice of a verb shows whether the subject is active or passive. The verb is active if the subject performs an action, and passive if the subject receives an action.
