Rhetorical figures as argument schemes – The proleptic suite

Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher
2017 Argument & Computation  
Identifying rhetorical figures with marginal to non-existent lexico-syntactic signatures poses significant challenges for computational approaches reliant upon structural definitions or descriptions. One such figure is prolepsis (πρóληψις ), which this essay charts out in some detail, addressing the challenges and the benefits of rendering such figures computationally tractable through the use of argument schemes with attention to metadiscursive or macro-discursive norms offered by pragmadialectical traditions.
