Visual Rhetoric Used in Mapping Natural Language Arguments
Visual Rhetoric Used in Mapping Natural
The visual representation of natural language arguments has come under intense study in recent years. Argument maps represent natural language arguments in a visual-spatial layout. Analysts reconstruct the deep structure of arguments visually, while stripping away unnecessary linguistic elements, leaving only the necessary elements of an argument. Combining insights from logic, linguistics, computer science and related fields, various scholars have participated in the development of different kinds of argument mapping software. The software provide analytic tools to lay out the structure of arguments visually. This includes the reconstruction of explicit and implicit premises, as well as the reconstruction of the argumentative schemes used in a given piece of text.
