posable and the calculi are believed to become more expressive.
We formalise that the addition of prompts corresponds to the addi­
tion of a single dynamically­scoped variable modelling the special
top­level continuation. From a type perspective, the dynamically­
scoped variable requires effect annotations. From a logic perspec­
