Abstract: The essence of the Finnish passive has been a popular topic for decades, and the existence of the category has even been questioned. The structures that the Finnish grammars call passives, seem to differ structurally from their counterparts in, for example, the most spoken languages in Europe. In this study, we focus on one of the Finnish passive-like constructions, i.e., the agent participle construction (APC). Our hypothesis is that in some respects this construction can be defined as the most passive-like or prototypical passive of Finnish. We study APC in light of proposed passive prototypes defined for cross-linguistic comparison. We also compare the APC to the so-called Finnish basic passive for determining which of these can be considered more prototypical. The study shows that in some respects the APC better corresponds to the description of the prototypical passive than the basic passive construction, and that both studied constructions can be defined as more prototypical, which depends largely on which feature of passive is taken to be more decisive.
