  1. The Argumentative Style of the Opening Speech of a Debate in the European Parliament.Bart Garssen - 2022 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 11 (1):47-68.
    In this contribution a characterization is given of the argumentative style utilised in an opening speech of a plenary debate in the European Parliament. This debate is initiated through an opening speech in which the rapporteur of a parliamentary committee presents the European Commission’s proposal, as well as the amendments and the arguments to support them. As it is the rapporteur’s aim to gain broad parliamentary agreement with the proposal, the opening speech is vital to the debate, because all contributions (...)

  • Antifascist Argumentation in Giacomo Matteotti’s 1924 Speech to the Italian Parliament.Emanuele Brambilla - 2022 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 11 (1):27-46.
    Decades after the Second World War, fascism is still rife in Europe. After acknowledging a certain difficulty on the part of contemporary antifascist arguers to affirm their tenets and discredit those of their opponents, this investigation looks back at the past to examine an inspiring antifascist speech. The speech that socialist leader Giacomo Matteotti delivered to the Italian Parliament in 1924 is analysed though the methodological lens of Pragma-dialectics, focusing on the notions of strategic manoeuvring, argumentative structure and argumentative style. (...)

  • Mediators’ Reframing as a Constitutive Element of a Reconciliatory Argumentative Style.Sara Greco & Chiara Jermini-Martinez Soria - 2021 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 10 (1):73-96.
    This paper shows that reframing of conflict can be considered as a constitutive element of a “reconciliatory argumentative style”, which is typical of dispute mediators, whose aim is to steer parties towards the resolution of their conflict. On the basis of a systematic empirical analysis of mediation cases, we first show that reframing encompasses a change of issue, which may or may not be justified by arguments. Then, we show how it is functional to the three aspects of mediators’ strategic (...)

  • Characteristics of a Detached Argumentative Style in Public Policy Analysis.Anca Gâță - 2021 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 10 (1):46-72.
    This study is a contribution to the recently introduced notion of argumentative style in the framework of the pragma-dialectical approach. It aims at characterizing a detached argumentative style, by focusing on a speech event pertaining to the communicative activity type organizational discourse, a report on EU environment and climate change policies. The analysis concerns the executive summary and the key findings of the report, reconstructed in the analysis as the concluding stage of the critical discussion corresponding to the pragma-dialectical model.

  • The Uncompromising Confrontational Argumentative Style of the Spokespersons’ Replies at the Regular Press Conferences of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.Wu Peng - 2021 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 10 (1):26-45.
    According to van Eemeren’s expose about the theoretical notion “argumentative style”, each of the four stages of an argumentative exchange in a certain institutional context can have its own argumentative style, but all of them may well belong to the same general category. As the start of a broad project investigating argumentative styles used in the spokespersons’ argumentative replies at the regular press conferences of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this paper focuses on the uncompromising confrontational style prototypically used by (...)
