Speech Acts of Argumentation: Inference Anchors and Peripheral Cues in Dialogue
This paper presents a theory which allows both central and peripheral aspects of argumentation to be represented in a coherent analytical account based on the sequences of speech acts which constitute dialogues.
How dialogues create arguments
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate how argumentation dialogues of various types can construct a shared map or a shared understanding of an issue under discussion. In the language of O'Keefe…
Theoretical foundations for illocutionary structure parsing
This paper reports on the initial steps of a project on argument mining from dialogue, and demonstrates how advances in Inference Anchoring Theory can also pave the way to automated and semi-automated research in understanding the structure of natural debate.
Towards Argument Mining from Dialogue
This paper introduces theoretical foundations for dialogical argument mining as well as showing the initial implementation in a software for dialogue processing, and the application in corpus analysis.

A method of graph-based analytics which uses properties of graphs representing networks of arguments pro- & con- in order to automatically analyse issues which divide citizens about new regulations is proposed.
Circularity in ethotic structures

- 1 October 2013
A model is provided that allows the representation and analysis of circularity in ethotic structures, i.e. in communication structures related to the speaker's character and in particular, his credibility, in self-referential sentences, embedded testimony and ethotic begging the question.
Lakatos-style collaborative mathematics through dialectical, structured and abstract argumentation
The Argument Web: an Online Ecosystem of Tools, Systems and Services for Argumentation
The aim of this paper is to summarise the key foundations, the recent advances and the goals of the Argument Web, with a particular focus on demonstrating the relevance to, and roots in, philosophical argumentation theory.
Building arguments with argumentation: the role of illocutionary force in computational models of argument
This paper builds upon the proposed dialogical extensions to the AIF, termed AIF+, by making explicit the representation of the role of illocutionary force in the connection between argument…

By exploring correspondences between ethos in political discourse and major events in the political landscape through ethos analytics, this work uncovers tantalising evidence that identifying expressions of positive and negative ethotic sentiment is a powerful instrument for understanding the dynamics of governments.
