The aim of this article is to show how modifications of meaning can influence argumentation. I present the basic concept of so-called 'semantic argumentation,' its definition, and its different variants. I analyse the various kinds of argument in which meanings of terms are modified in support of a persuasive goal. The analysis of different semantic arguments reveals certain structures and patterns that are needed to construct a typology of such arguments. I thus outline a basic concept of
