Frans H. van Eemeren Reasonableness in situated discourse: Fallacies as derailments of strategic manoeuvring

Abstract: In the pragma-dialectical approach fallacies are defined as violations of rules for critical discussion which manifest themselves in derailments of strategic manoeuvring.

  • Crazylight Boost 2016 Low
  • Maglie Detroit Pistons These may easily escape attention because they can be very similar to sound instances of strategic manoeuvring. Victor Cruz Jersey nike air max 2016 dames Strategic manoeuvring only derails into fallaciousness if it goes against the norms for having a reasonable exchange embodied in the rules for critical discussion. This means in practice that the argumentative moves that were made are not in agreement with the relevant criteria for complying with a particular norm.

  • Nike Air Max 90 Donna Grigie
  • Adidas Homme These criteria vary to some extent according to the argumentative context and, in so far as this is the case, they are determined by the soundness conditions the argumentative moves have to fulfill to remain within the bounds of dialectical reasonableness in the activity type concerned. Fallacy judgments are in the end contextual judgments that depend on the specific circumstances of situated argumentative acting. Miami Heat The criteria for determining whether or not a certain norm for critical discussion has been violated may depend on the institutional conventions of the argumentative activity type concerned. Nike Pas Cher This does not mean that there are no clear criteria for determining whether the strategic manoeuvring has gone astray, but only that the specific shape these criteria take may vary from the one argumentative activity to the other.

    Corina Andone Manoeuvring strategically in responding to accusations of inconsistency in political interviews

    Abstract: This paper examines the consecutive perlocutionary consequences of the illocutionary act of accusation of inconsistency and illustrates how these consequences can be strategically performed in the context of political interviews in what can be reconstructed as the confrontation stage of a critical discussion. adidas nmd mujer Nike Scarpe Uomo Nike TN Requin 2017

    Isabela Ieţcu-Fairclough Legitimation and argumentative strategic maneuvering in the political field: Traian Băsescu’s ‘suspension speech’

    Abstract: In this paper I am trying to bring together a pragma-dialectical conception of argumentation, a sociological conception of legitimacy, as well as a sociological theory of the political field. Nike Air Huarache damskie I will draw on the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation developed by van Eemeren and Grootendorst (1992, 2004) and particularly on the concept of strategic maneuvering (van Eemeren and Houtlosser 2002, 2003, 2005), as well as on approaches to legitimacy by philosophers and sociologists (Habermas 1976, 1984, Beetham 1991).

    Abstract: This paper represents a case study of the types of fallacies that may occur in the argumentation stage of an ethical dispute over abortion. asics gel nimbus donna The theoretical framework I use is the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation (van Eemeren and Grootendorst 1992, 2004) which conceives of fallacies as violations of the rules for critical discussion.

    Diana Hornoiu Language as a means of gender identity construction

    Abstract: This paper examines gender ideologies in English and Romanian societies and argues that these ideologies which assign men and women different social roles become manifest in language at the level of conversational strategies through the process of socialization.

    Abstract: The present paper is an attempt to highlight that while joke reception entails the successive activation of two scripts which do not normally co-occur, the second script, triggered by the punchline is not opposed to the first, but suspends and challenges expectations created by the first script.

  • Shaw’s Caesar and Cleopatra

    Abstract: This paper is a part of a larger project on the language behaviour of different ethnic groups in Shaw’s plays.

    Daniela Ionescu Parallel corpora as texts in a TSP context. buty damskie squash asics Yadier Molina Authentic Jersey nike air jordan 12 mujer An argumentative approach

    Abstract: The present paper aims at proposing several ways of selecting and typologising specialized texts according to different criteria, such as thematic content, genre criteria, or structural discursive differences. This approach follows the current views on discourse structure and the theory of parallel corpora. The texts that make up a corpus of targeted discourse pieces share several properties but they also serve a different purpose, which is the author’s communicative intention to make the information or comments structured in the text relevant in some specific way to readership.
