  • I don't know what is best. Anyway it's possible with P31. --Betterknower (talk) 18:28, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

  • The last dump of German wiktionary says, that about 95% of all German verbs have one or several values of passive voice. Betterknower (talk) 21:26, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
    • Looks like it.
