Ääs isch es Liebs : weibliches Neutrum und Beziehung im Schweizerdeutschen

Baumgartner, Gerda ; Christen, Helen (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2021.

Die vorliegende Arbeit widmet sich dem dialektalen Phänomen des weiblichen Neutrums im schweizerdeutschen Rufnamen- und Pronomengebrauch. Ausgangspunkt bildet die Beobachtung, dass nicht nur modifizierte Rufnamen auf -i wie (s) Heidi, sondern auch nicht- modifizierte Rufnamen wie (s) Anna und Pronomen unter Umständen das neutrale Genus führen (Ääs isch es Liebs). Dabei kommt es in...

Give the Standard Treatment of Fallacies a Chance! Cognitive and Rhetorical Insights into Fallacy Processing

Oswald, Steve ; Herman, Thierry

In: From Argument Schemes to Argumentative Relations in the Wild, 2019, p. 41-62

While we acknowledge the inadequacy of the standard treatment of fallacies (see Hamblin 1970, p. 12) when it comes to assessing the normative dimension of argumentation, we suggest that its definition of fallacious arguments sheds light on another issue of interest to argumentation scholars, namely rhetorical effectiveness. Specifically, we contend that this definition contains a fundamental...

Pragmatique cognitive, argumentation et perlocution

Oswald, Steve

In: Argumentation et analyse du discours, 2020, p. 1-18

This paper discusses the links between pragmatics (defined as the study of meaning in context) and the study of argumentation in order to ground a pragmatic approach to perlocution. Traditionally devoted to the study of illocutionary meaning, in the vein of speech act theory, pragmatics has tended to exclude the perlocutionary act from the set of phenomena it set out to account for. Here I...

The Linguistic Formulation of Fallacies Matters : The Case of Causal Connectives

Oswald, Steve ; Schumann, Jennifer ; Zufferey, Sandrine

In: Argumentation, 2020, p. 1-28

While the role of discourse connectives has long been acknowledged in argumentative frameworks, these approaches often take a coarse-grained approach to connectives, treating them as a unified group having similar effects on argumentation. Based on an empirical study of the straw man fallacy, we argue that a more finegrained approach is needed to explain the role of each connective and...

Everybody Knows that There Is Something Odd About Ad Populum Arguments

Herman, Thierry ; Oswald, Steve

In: The Language of Argumentation, 2021, p. 305-323

In the wake of research on linguistic resources of argumentation (Doury, 2018; van Eemeren Houtlosser, & Snoeck Henkemans, 2007), this chapter considers the argumentative nature and rhetorical potential of the expression “everyone/everybody knows P”, which is likely to be used to fulfil a justificatory purpose in appeals to majority in the form of ad populum arguments (Godden, 2008). In...
