decide.01: DECIDE-V NOTES: No VNcls. Maybe these last two should be regarded as a separate sense/roleset;they essentially mean "cause an unstated entity to make a decision".They're also different in that they take a straight nominal "decision". (from decide.01-v) DECISION-N NOTES: Updated by Julia. No Vncls. *Lots of .LV instances: "make a decision", even a "take a decision". Watch out, and see examples. (from decision.01-n)
