Abstract : The objectives of this quantitative-qualitative study were:To investigate the use of passive voice as the predominant voice in the science discourse community comparing with the general text and 2:To find out which type of auxiliary tense is used as the most frequent passive voice in scientific genre and in general texts as well.To this aim, twenty randomly selected articles including ten linguistics articles as scientific ones from The Journal of Linguistics, and ten other articles as general texts from The Economist/culture published from 2002-2011 were considered as the material of the corpus. The total frequencyof the passive voices of the scientific articles was found to be 68 vs. 32 for the general articles.The total frequencies of the canonical passive voice tenses of the scientific and general articles on the corpus were found to be 82 , 13 and 5 for the present, past and future tenses, respectively.The highest to the lowest passive voice frequency of the scientific articles were found to be 40.4 , 22 , 17.4 , 13.1 , and 7.1 , for the sections: Results, Method, Introduction, Discussion and Abstract, respectively. Testifying throughthe analytic statistical Mann-Whitney U Test, along with the descriptive statistics, showedthe scientific genre tended to have larger values than the general genre with regard to passivized structure;there was a significant statistical difference between the means of two genres for the distributions of frequency of passive voice at level p-value ?0.05; andit was approved that passivized structures are more frequent in scientific genre compared with general English, but itwas disapproved that the feature "voice" was a critical structural stylistic element in scientific and general English genres, although the passive voice was an important grammatical structure that appeared in every form of written and spoken English.Finally, a post hoc ScheffeTest showedthe Mean difference between frequency of passive voice of two genres was significant at the levelp-value = 0.05..
