The ways words and sentences are arranged according to the rules of grammar, for example, in English the passive verb form be + past participle is used to show that the subject of the sentence is not the agent of the verb, but rather receives the action. It is incorrect to say “The wharenui is building”, the correct grammatical construction is “The wharenui is being built”.
