Developing a Formal Model of Argumentation-based Dialogue

Mare Koit

Abstract

We are considering dialogues in natural language where the participants (A and B) are arguing for and against of doing an action D by B. The participants can have similar or opposite communicative goals. If both A and B have the same goal („B will do D“ or, respectively, „B will not do D“) then they are cooperatively looking for arguments that will eliminate possible obstacles before achieving the goal. If the goals are opposite then the participants exchange arguments and counterarguments and one of them has finally to abandon his or her initial communicative goal. A model of dialogue has being developed which includes a model of argument. An analysis of human-human dialogue corpus is carried out in order to give a preliminary evaluation of the introduced model. A limited version of the model is implemented on the computer. Full implementation is planned as a future work.
