    Inference in Argumentation: A Topics-Based Approach to Argument Schemes.Sara Greco & Eddo Rigotti - 2019 - Springer Verlag.
    This book investigates the role of inference in argumentation, considering how arguments support standpoints on the basis of different loci. The authors propose and illustrate a model for the analysis of the standpoint-argument connection, called Argumentum Model of Topics. A prominent feature of the AMT is that it distinguishes, within each and every single argumentation, between an inferential-procedural component, on which the reasoning process is based; and a material-contextual component, which anchors the argument in the interlocutors’ cultural and factual common (...)

    Argumentation and Meaning.Steve Oswald, Sara Greco, Johanna Miecznikowski, Chiara Pollaroli & Andrea Rocci - 2020 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 9 (1):1-18.
    This special issue aims to explore the semantic and pragmatic dimensions of meaning in terms of their significance and relevance in the study of argumentation. Accordingly, the contributors to the project, who have all presented their work during the 2nd Argumentation and Language conference, which took place in Lugano in February 2018,1 have been specifically instructed to produce papers which explicitly tackle the importance of the study of meaning for that of argumentative practices. All papers therefore cover at least one (...)

    The Analysis of Implicit Premises Within Children’s Argumentative Inferences.Sara Greco, Anne-Nelly Perret-Clermont, Antonio Iannaccone, Andrea Rocci, Josephine Convertini & Rebecca Gabriela Schär - 2018 - Informal Logic 38 (4):438-470.
    This paper presents preliminary findings of the project [name omitted for anonymity]. This interdisciplinary project builds on Argumentation theory and developmental sociocultural psychology for the study of children’s argumentation. We reconstruct children’s inferences in adult-child and child-child dialogical interaction in conversation in different settings. We focus in particular on implicit premises using the Argumentum Model of Topics for the reconstruction of the inferential configuration of arguments. Our findings reveal that sources of misunderstandings are more often than not due to misalignments (...)

    Using Argumentative Tools to Understand Inner Dialogue.Sara Greco - 2017 - Argumentation 31 (2):331-358.
    The starting point of this paper is the acknowledgement that individual reasoning, understood as inner dialogue, and social argumentation, albeit they are two different phenomena, share some similarities. On this basis, this paper sets out to apply instruments from argumentation theory to inner dialogue in order to better explain it. Within this framework, some limitations to the study of inner dialogue are also discussed; and methodological suggestions are provided in order to grasp what could be considered data on “inner dialogue” (...)

    Do Adult-Children Dialogical Interactions Leave Space for a Full Development of Argumentation?Sara Greco, Teuta Mehmeti & Anne-Nelly Perret-Clermont - 2017 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 6 (2):193-219.
    This paper sets out to analyse a case study of adult-children interaction in an educational context from a perspective of argumentation. We select a case in which 3 argumentative discussions are opened and we analyse them with the aim of understanding whether they are fully developed from a point of view of argumentation; or whether they are cut short and why. Our focus is not on the children’s individual productions but on the process of interaction. We assume the pragma-dialectical model (...)

    Towards an Integrated Argumentative Approach to Multimodal Critical Discourse Analysis: Evidence From the Portrayal of Refugees and Immigrants in Greek Newspapers.Dimitris Serafis, Sara Greco, Chiara Pollaroli & Chiara Jermini-Martinez Soria - 2020 - Critical Discourse Studies 17 (5):545-565.
    ABSTRACTThis paper proposes a methodological synthesis in order to study multimodal media discourse and argumentation in the context of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ in Greece. It follows the fram...

    Evading the Burden of Proof in European Union Soft Law Instruments: The Case of Commission Recommendations.Corina Andone & Sara Greco - 2018 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 31 (1):79-99.
    The European Union is making increased efforts to find simpler and more effective ways to function adequately in the eyes of its citizens by using ‘soft law’ instruments such as recommendations. Although they have no legally binding force, recommendations have practical and legal effects occurring partly due to their normative content in which a course of action is prescribed and further supported by arguments intended to persuade the addressees of a political position. Although recommendations function as persuasive instruments due to (...)

    The Significance of the Adversative Connectives Aber, Mais, Ma (‘but’) as Indicators in Young Children’s Argumentation.Andrea Rocci, Sara Greco, Rebecca Schär, Josephine Convertini, Anne-Nelly Perret-Clermont & Antonio Iannaccone - 2020 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 9 (1):69-94.
    Adversative connectives have been analyzed as articulating explicit and implicit facets of argumentative moves and have been thus recognized as potential argumentative indicators. Here we examine adversative connectives Ger. aber, Fr. mais, It. ma in young children’s speech in the context of the ArgImp project, a research endeavor seeking to understand in which situations children aged between two and six years engage in argumentation and how their contributions are structured. Two multilingual corpora have been collected for the project: everyday family (...)

  9. Adding a Temporal Dimension to the Analysis of Argumentative Discourse: Justified Reframing as a Means of Turning a Single-Issue Discussion Into a Complex Argumentative Discussion.Chiara Mercuri, Chiara Pollaroli, Rebecca Schär & Sara Greco - 2018 - Discourse Studies 20 (6):726-742.
    This article seeks to extend existing models of argumentation by considering an important dimension of real-life argumentative discourse: how complex argumentative discussions evolve over time. We define a complex argumentative discussion as a multi-issue discussion, in which the different issues are interrelated in the form of a hierarchy. We claim that justified reframing might be used to transform a single-issue argumentative discussion into a complex argumentative discussion. To illustrate this, we examine the Facebook discourse of the Rhodes Must Fall movement (...)

    Divide to Unite.Emma van Bijnen & Sara Greco - 2018 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 7 (3):285-315.
    In dispute mediation, mediators, perhaps counterintuitively, make the disagreement between parties explicit and formulate their interventions on the disagreement in such a way that the disagreement is made manageable. In this paper, three functions of identifying and elucidating the parties’ disagreement that demonstrate the importance of making disagreement salient – uncovering real issues, emphasizing conflict ownership, making disagreements manageable – are presented. Corpora of mediation simulation transcripts are used as empirical bases for the analyses of the means by which mediators (...)

    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 (...)

    Argumentative Dynamics in Representations of Migrants and Refugees: Evidence From the Italian Press During the ‘Refugee Crisis’.Andrea Rocci, Sara Greco, Stavros Assimakopoulos, Carlo Raimondo & Dimitris Serafis - 2021 - Discourse and Communication 15 (5):559-581.
    The present paper analyses discursive representations and standpoint-arguments pairs, realized in articles of four mainstream Italian newspapers that report on migrants’ and refugees’ mobilization at the perceived peak of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’. We draw on the scholarly agenda of Critical Discourse Studies, employing tools from corpus linguistic perspectives, which allow us to generalize over the way in which the relevant minorities are represented in our corpus. Then, focusing on a smaller sample of negative representations, we outline a methodological synthesis (...)
