ENThe article deals with the notion of so-called converse reflexives, illustrated from Slavic and Baltic. It is argued that though the notion of reflexive converses, i.e. pairs of converses formally differentiated by the reflexive marker, is uncontroversial, that of converse reflexives as a subtype of reflexives (middles) and a distinct gram-type in voice typology, is mistaken, as the converse effect is the result not only of the reflexive derivation but also of several other factors, viz. argument conflation and complement-modifier indeterminacy.
