drag.01: DRAG-V NOTES: Frames file for 'drag' based on sentences in financial subcorpus. Verbnet entry carry-11.4, other framed members include kick and push. Comparison with 'push'. (from drag.01-v predicate notes) DRAG-N NOTES: Based on verb entry drag.01. Corresponds to Verbnet entry carry-11.4. Differs from verb entry because I removed mappings to 'search' class because this is different sense that can be added as needed (e.g. "drag the lake for abandoned cars"), and I added arg3 for source (distinguishing this from true argm-dir). Framed by Claire. (from drag.01-n)
