Amy and the passive

Amy doesn't seem to have acquired a passive voice yet, and will simply use the active voice instead—"stones can't eat" (= can't be eaten), for example.

It reminds me of the Swedish passives(?) in -s, which otherwise look very similar to their corresponding active forms (no separate auxiliary verb, for example).
