Given a controversial issue, a major challenge in argumentmining is to organize the arguments which have been minedto generate a synthesis that is readable, synthetic enough andrelevant for various types of users. Based on the GenerativeLexicon (GL) Qualia structure, which is a kind of lexicaland knowledge repository, that we have enhanced in di↵erentmanners and associated with inferences and language pat-terns, we show how to construct a synthesis that outlines thetypical elements found in…

Argument Mining: A Survey
TLDR
The techniques that establish the foundations for argument mining are explored, a review of recent advances in argument mining techniques are provided, and the challenges faced in automatically extracting a deeper understanding of reasoning expressed in language in general are discussed.
Argument Mining: A Survey
TLDR
This survey explores the techniques that establish the foundations for argument mining, provides a review of recent advances in argument mining techniques, and discusses the challenges faced in automatically extracting a deeper understanding of reasoning expressed in language in general.
Efficient Argument Structure Extraction with Transfer Learning and Active Learning
TLDR
A novel context-aware Transformer-based argument structure prediction model is proposed which significantly outperforms models that rely on features or only encode limited contexts, and model-independent sample acquisition strategies are proposed which can be generalized to diverse domains.
Using Question-Answering Techniques to Implement a Knowledge-Driven Argument Mining Approach
TLDR
This short paper presents a first implementation of a knowledge-driven argument mining approach and an indicative evaluation outlines challenges and improvement directions.
Argumentation Mining
TLDR
Computational linguistics research on argumentation grows constantly, and impressive industrial applications such as IBM's Debater start to appear, and the ArgMining workshop series exists, annually taking place at ACL, EMNLP, or NAACL.

Challenges of Argument Mining: Generating an Argument Synthesis based on the Qualia Structure
TLDR
It is shown that the Generative Lexicon (GL) Qualia structure, enhanced in different manners and associated with inferences and language patterns, allows to capture the typical concepts found in arguments and to organize a relevant synthesis.
A Model for Processing Illocutionary Structures and Argumentation in Debates
TLDR
This paper introduces the development corpus, and a computational model designed for the identification of discourse minimal units in the context of argumentation and the illocutionary force associated with each unit.
Some Facets of Argument Mining for Opinion Analysis
TLDR
A conceptual semantics of the relations of evaluative expressions with a discourse structure such as an elaboration, an illustration, or a reformulation must also be interpreted as an argument is developed.
Knowledge-driven argument mining based on the qualia structure
TLDR
It is shown that the Qualia structure of the Generative Lexicon with some extensions and a specific interpretation has some expressive capabilities which are appropriate for this task.
Argument Mining: the Bottleneck of Knowledge and Language Resources
Given a controversial issue, argument mining from natural language texts (news papers, and any form of text on the Internet) is extremely challenging: domain knowledge is often required together with
Using Argumentation Strategies in Automated Argument Generation
TLDR
This paper incorporates into a Bayesian argument-generation system a mechanism for proposing applicable argumentation strategies, generating specific arguments based on these strategies, and selecting a final argument.
From Argument Diagrams to Argumentation Mining in Texts: A Survey
TLDR
The authors provide a critical survey of the literature on both the resulting representations i.e., argument diagramming techniques and on the various aspects of the automatic analysis process.
Argumentation within deductive reasoning
TLDR
Capabilities of the model include adaptation to human‐adequate degrees of granularity and explicitness in the underlying argumentation and interactive exploration of proofs and shows they are essential ingredients to support the functionality of dialog‐oriented tutorial systems in formal domains.
Argumentation mining: the detection, classification and structure of arguments in text
TLDR
This paper analyzes the main research questions when dealing with argumentation mining and the different methods studied and developed in order to successfully confront the challenges of argumentationmining in legal texts.
