Olesya Razuvayevskaya, Simone Teufel, Patrick Saint-Dizier, Manfred Stede

Here, we present a feasibility study for the task of finding and expanding enthymemes involving a fortiori arguments in realworld texts, and we show that given a sufficiently strict reformulation of the  ...  In a case study involving the two authors of this paper as annotators, we test a specific type of a fortiori arguments, the let alone construction, for its suitability for reaching high agreement in all  ...  Discussion and conclusions In this work, we presented the first study on whether it is possible for humans to reliably find and reconstruct enthymemes in unrestricted texts.  ...

Implicit Knowledge in Argumentative Texts: An Annotated Corpus [article]

Maria Becker, Katharina Korfhage, Anette Frank
2019 arXiv   pre-print
As a starting point for filling such knowledge gaps, we build a corpus consisting of high-quality human annotations of missing and implied information in argumentative texts.  ...  Especially in argumentative texts it is very common that (important) parts of the argument are implied and omitted.  ...  We expect it to be a useful starting point for automatically filling knowledge gaps in arguments, and we hope that it will inspire future research on argument analysis and implicit knowledge acquisition  ...

Special issue: Foundations of the language of argumentation

Patrick Saint-Dizier, Manfred Stede, Patrick Saint-Dizier, Manfred Stede
2017 Argument & Computation  
Argumentation mining, the automatic search for arguments in texts (in favour or against a particular standpoint) has become increasingly popular during the last few years.  ...  However, full-fledged argumentation mining, given a standpoint toward some critical question, is a very difficult problem, and the approaches are still in a relatively early development stage.  ...  A feasibility study is proposed in this contribution dedicated to finding and expanding enthymemes involving a fortiori arguments in real world texts.  ...

In the case of the latter, his ideas on the importance of lucidity in productive discourse situations will be explored and recast within a light of modern pragmatic theory.  ...  In this discussion, there will be a particular focus on the pragmatic notion of implicature from the perspective of Grice, the neo-Griceans and also the Roman rhetorician Quintilian.  ...  Introduction Is there a role for classical rhetoric in modern linguistic studies and, in particular, in the field of pragmatics?  ...
