Description The study discusses the three probably most influential theories of the passive in generative grammar: Chomsky (1957), Jaeggli (1986) and Collins (2005), aiming to evaluate their proposed analyses of the passive structure in terms of their adequacy with regard to the syntactic and semantic properties of the by­phrase in the Czech long passive. Most adequate theory is the one by Collins, called “smuggling analysis”, because it is consistent with other principles of generative grammar, especially with the UTAH hypothesis (Baker, 1988).
