About this book

Argumentative Indicators: A Pragma-Dialectical Study identifies and analyses English words and expressions that are crucial for an adequate reconstruction of argumentative discourse. It provides the analyst of argumentative discussions and texts with a systematic set of instruments for giving a well-founded analysis which results in an analytic overview of the elements that are relevant for the evaluation of the argumentation. In the book a systematic connection is made between linguistic insights into the characteristics of argumentative discourse and insights from argumentation theory into the resolution of differences of opinion by means of argumentation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book deals with argumentative indicators, which have so far not been dealt with in such detail within Pragma-Dialectics. … All in all, then, ‘Argumentative Indicators in Discourse’ should become an indispensable part of the analytical tool kit of every argumentation scholar. … I would like to state once more that van Eemeren et al. have made an important and extremely useful contribution to the study of argumentation, which will be greatly enhanced by this clear and well-founded overview about argumentative indicators in discourse.”­­­ (Manfred Kienpointner, Argumentation, Vol. 24, March, 2010)
