comment Questions about 背負う
The tricky thing is that しょう here is not a homonym of しょう as in 賞, 章, and 小. That's a bold claim and I'm not quite sure I understand how they could be pronounced differently. Do you have a source that can verify this?

comment which are the technical names for these verb transforms?
I'd never heard the term 受動態 before, but apparently they are equivalent. The though means "form", so 受動態 seems like the more general "passive voice".
