reach.01: REACH-V NOTES: Frames file for 'reach' based on survey of initial sentences of big corpus and comparison with 'gain' and 'get'. VerbNet class reach-51.8, get-13.5.1. Treebank often gives a bogus parse for (eg) "reach an agreementwith John". Clearly it should be [reach] [an agreement with John],but Treebank has chosen [reach] [an agreement] [with John], probablybecause you can extract the agreement (ie, in passive sentences) butleave the PP "with John" behind. You'll have to follow the twoexamples above based on which syntactic parse is given. (from reach.01-v) REACHING-J NOTES: Automatically created by Julia as an alias file for unification.
