This paper aims to examine whether it might be argued that different passive structures in journalistic Arabic do not necessarily convey different semantic content, as reflected in recent research. It will be shown that it is not always possible to determine the precise intention of the author based on the passive structure, i.e. which aspect of the event he emphasizes ? the process or the finished result.
