composing a short argument some general rules
Composing a Short Argument- Some General Rules

1)Distinguish premises ( önkabul/ varsayım) and conclusion: Theconclusion is thestatementforwhichyougivereasons. Thestatementswhichgiveyourreasonsare ‘premises’.

2) Present your ideas in a natural order: Eachclaimshouldleadnaturallytothenext.

3) Start from reliable premises: No matter how wellyouarguefrompremisestoyourconclusion, it will be weakifyourpremisesareweak.


4) Be concrete and concise; Avoidabstract, vague, general terms.

5)Avoid loaded language: Do not makeyourargumentlookgoodbydemonizingtheoppositingside. Bewarevalue-laden wording.

6) Stick to one meaning for each term: Sexesarethe ‘equal’ sothelawshould not pretendthatweare ‘equal’.

7) Use consistent terms: Stick to a single set of terms to have connection between premises.
