Re: Is this a passive?

In Rihana-ye the passive is formed by adding the agent suffix -je to the
noun or pronoun which performs the action, and adding the passive suffix
-si to the verb. This parallels usage in Japanese.

Ba tafa go.
Man bird eats. (active)

Tafa ba-je go-si. (passive)
Bird man-by eaten-is.
