I was wondering how so-called "middle constructions" like the English ones exemplified in (1), which are typically translated with a reflexive verb in Romance languages (e.g., see the Catalan examples in (2)), are expressed in Latin. See also this video for a very basic introduction to so-called "middle constructions" (in the sense of (some) recent linguistic literature).
(1) a. Whales frighten easily.
b. These dishes break easily.
c. Messages transmit rapidly.
(2) a. Les balenes s'espanten fàcilment.
b. Aquests plats es trenquen fàcilment.
c. Els missatges es transmeten ràpidament.
As pointed out by Levin (1993: 5), only causative verbs of change (e.g., frighten, break, open, dry, etc.) typically enter into the so-called "middle construction" (in the sense of the abovementioned links). For example, according to her, stative verbs (e.g., see, believe, etc.) do not typically enter into this construction (e.g., *Whales see easily is ill-formed).
I was wondering (i) whether a similar set of "middle constructions" can be identified in Latin and (ii) whether similar semantic restrictions like the ones pointed out above by Levin apply to their equivalent Latin constructions (e.g., reflexive and/or mediopassive constructions, constructions with deverbal adjectives ending with -bilis suffix, etc.).
NB I: here I'm specifically interested in those "middle constructions" that receive this (appropriate or not!) label in the (recent) linguistic literature above (e.g., see the links above). I.e., although it is related to this topic, my question is not whether there is a "middle voice" in Latin.
NB II: so-called "middle constructions" (again defined in the sense of links above) are typically separated from so-called "anticausative/ergative constructions" (see this link): for example, the former can be formed from agentive verbs, whereas the latter can't (e.g., cf. the well-formedness of These horses saddle easily vs. the ill-formedness of *These horses saddled easily. NB: the verb saddle (meaning 'to provide with a saddle') is necessarily agentive).
