Roleset id: reach.01 , arrive at, get to, attain, Source: , vncls: 51.8 13.5.1, framnet: reach.01: 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.
