Light Verbs and Polysemy.
Brugman, Claudia
Language Sciences, v23 n4-5 p551-78 Jul-Sep 2001
Examines the relationship between the polysemic structure of main verbs and their light counterparts. Suggests that light verbs are systematically related to their heavy counterparts in retaining the force-dynamic properties of the heavy sense, but that the conceptual domain in which that force-dynamic structure applies shifts from the physical to a psychological domain.
