It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Argumentation in Dispute Mediation
Subtitle: A reasonable way to handle conflict
Written By: Sara Greco Morasso
Series Title: Argumentation in Context 3

The context of mediation immediately highlights the importance of
argumentation as a means to reasonably handle conflict. Argumentation in
dispute mediation
tackles this topic providing both theoretical
insights and detailed empirical argumentative analysis. Its goal is
twofold: to explore mediation as a real-life context of argumentation and
to show how an increased argumentative awareness could improve conflict

Particular emphasis is accorded to mapping mediation through an
interdisciplinary reasoned review of existing accounts. The outline of a
conceptual framework of mediation constitutes a solid basis for the study
of argumentation in mediation. The argumentative analysis of a corpus of
mediation cases, based on the pragma-dialectical account and the Argumentum
Model of Topics, shows the mediator’s moves which actually help conflicting
parties discuss reasonably. The mediator’s topical potential plays a
crucial role in this relation at the levels of issue selection, evoking of
cultural-contextual premises and choice of argument schemes.
