The paper analyses argumentation in two different professional contexts – the former, a joint company, which brings together Romanian and Belgian employees, and the latter, a Romanian company. The paper is structured in three parts – a theoretical presentation of argumentation, defined as a type of interaction whose aim is to solve differences of opinions between interlocutors, the data analysis part, and the conclusions. It reconstructs the argument, identifies its type, function and forms, and draws conclusions in terms of different argumentation strategies used in the two companies.
