Combining Argument Mining Techniques
John Lawrence and Chris Reed
2nd Workshop on Argumentation Mining (ARG-MINING 2015)
Denver, Colorado, USA, June 4, 2015
In this paper, we look at three different methods of extracting the argumentative structure from a piece of natural language text. These methods cover linguistic features, changes in the topic being discussed and a supervised machine learning approach to identify the components of argumentation schemes, patterns of human reasoning which have been detailed extensively in philosophy and psychology. For each of these approaches we achieve results comparable to those previously reported, whilst at the same time achieving a more detailed argument structure. Finally, we use the results from these individual techniques to apply them in combination, further improving the argument structure identification.
