introduce.01: INTRODUCE-V NOTES: To my mind, "introduce" takes two almost-symmetrical arguments; thatis, if arg1 is introduced to arg2, logically arg2 is introduced toarg1 as well. Further, there are complicated figure-ground andintentionality relations to worry about also. To AVOID all of that,take a purely *syntactic* approach to the arg1/arg2 distinction: arg2is introduced by "to". (from introduce.01-v)
