argumentative moves
*Systematically based on a well-developed theory of argumentation
*Covers all stages of a critical discussion

This volume identifies and analyses English words and expressions that are
crucial for an adequate reconstruction of argumentative discourse. It

the evaluation of the argumentation. By starting from everyday examples,
the study immediately connects with the practice of argumentative discourse.
