Mayer, Rolf
Language and Cognitive Processes, v7 n1 p23-66 Feb 1992
Elaborates upon the linguistic implications of results centered around "prospect theory." Issues examined include granularity of meaning, including the status of thematic roles and the foreground/background distinction; the relationship of schematic and conceptual structure; information packaging; and the interface between the semantics of verbs related to winning and losing.
