Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Philosophy of Language

Meeting Description:

The aim of this meeting is to discuss the theory and practice of argument and reasoning from a linguistics perspective. Topics will depend on the interests of the participants, but are likely to include:

The Language of Argumentation
Argumentation and Experiment in Linguistics
The Nature of Evidence
Informal Logic Fallacies
Materials for Teaching Argumentation
Rhetoric and Persuasion

Rather than presentations followed by a few minutes for discussion, this meeting will feature workshops of about one hour, concentrating on providing a forum for discussion and co-operation.
