How to conclude practical argument in a multi-party debate: A speech act analysis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A practical argument in a multi-party debate (argumentative polylogue). To this end, I offer a detailed scheme of practical argument suitable for an external pragmatic account (rather than internal cognitive). Speech acts concluding practical argument – promises, vows, advice, proposals, and others - differ chiefly depending on the agent of action [me, us, you. them] and the conclusion´s illocutionary strenght.
