More generally, are we supposed to assume that intransitive verbs lack middles? Are we at least supposed to assume that they lack middles that serve as passives?
And I have a related question. If we take a transitive verb and employ one of the passive forms, is that passive form also transitive (in the reverse direction), or is it intransitive--generally speaking of course?
That is a more difficult question than you might imagine. I recommend you read this: Active, Middle, and Passive: Understanding Ancient Greek Voice
