Reasons for the Correlation of Voice, Tense, and Sentence Function in Reporting Verbs.
Shaw, Philip
Applied Linguistics, v13 n3 p302-19 Sep 1992
The Introduction sections of some Ph.D. dissertations were examined to determine the significance of verb form in reporting verbs like "find" or "show." When forms were classified in relation to sentence function, some correlation with tense was found, but there were also correlations between tense and voice and between these two and sentence form.
