Sammanfattning (abstract):
In this paper we propose that Aristotelian enthymemes play a role in the resources available to dialogue participants. We take as our point of departure the idea that every individual has a set of linguistic resources that are formed and reformed through interaction with other individuals and context. We regard enthymemes as dependent record types, functions which map contexts modelled as records, corresponding to the premises of the enthymeme, to a record type which models a proposition corresponding to the conclusion of the enthymeme. The advantage of using record types is that they give us semantic objects corresponding to enthymemes (as opposed to textual objects such as inference rules) and a straightforward way of generalizing, restricting and combining enthymemes thereby giving a theory of how agents can expand and reform their rhetorical resources on the basis of experience.
