In English, when converting an active sentence into a passive one, we often end up with a retained object. For example: John gave Mary the book. To change this sentence into the passive, we have 2 main possibilities: 1) The book was given to Mary by John. 2) Mary was given the book by John. In 2), the book has now become a retained object. To translate 1) into Greek, I believe it would be: 1) Δόθηκε το βιβλίο στη Μαρία από Γιάννη. What about 2)? Is it possible to express the passive with a retained object in Greek?
