Six related essays on argumentative style
This introduction to the special issue devoted to argumentative style describes the way in which this collection of six papers came about. It recapitulates the main thrust of the issues that are included. All authors share the pragma-dialectical perspective on argumentative style set forth in the first contribution, in which argumentative style is connected with strategic manoeuvring. In analysing argumentative styles, they concentrate on different kinds of argumentative discourses and have a different emphasis in carrying out their analyses.
Keywords: argumentative style, communicative activity type, pragma-dialectics
