Summary/Abstract: The deliberations presented in the article are the attempt to bring closer and verify the views on the transitiveness, to point some difficulties and make some suggestions about possible classifications. The general aim, however, is to analyse specific examples, i.e. the passive forms that occur in the first book of the Iliad. It seems that the presented method of analysing the text may give a chance for new interpretation, increase the preciseness and eliminate the burden of the traditional notions.
