reintroduce.01: REINTRODUCE-V NOTES: To my mind, "reintroduce" takes two almost-symmetrical arguments; thatis, if arg1 is reintroduced to arg2, logically arg2 is reintroduced 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 reintroduced by "to". (from reintroduce.01-v)
