An important tool for scientific study in any field is a formal
language in which the phenomena can be described and hypotheses
formulated. In this book a formal notation is developed for the
description of the cognitive structure of arguments. The analyses
based on this notation are more fine-grained than the analyses in
previous attempts, and they are applicable not only to arguments but
to all types of moves in a discourse. Further, the notational system
provides a basis for the description of relations between arguments
and the structure of the discourse as a whole. In the final chapter,
some empirical studies of retention of arguments in memory and of
pr�cis writing are reported, based on hypotheses formulated in terms
of the notational system.
