I'm wondering whether the sentence I like eating rice has a passive form. I'm quoting from Advanced Grammar In Use:
Verbs which in the active are followed by an object consisting of a noun phrase and -ing clause usually have no passive. (The book lists some verbs and I see there's the verb like)
Does that mean the sentence has no passive form because it has a noun phrase eating rice? I believe eating is in gerund form because it precedes by the verb like and can be treated as a noun like when we say 'I like it'. Also, I don't know why the author says 'usually' and not 'always' is the author trying to say that there's possibility some sentences with this construction have the passive form?
