Argumentative Text as Rhetorical Structure: An Application of Rhetorical Structure Theory [Book Review]

Argumentation 13 (1):97-114 (1999)
Abstract
Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST), as a tool for analyzing written texts, is particularly appropriate for analyzing argumentative texts. The distinction that RST makes between the part of a text that realizes the primary goal of the writer, termed nucleus, and the part that provides supplementary material, termed satellite, is crucial for the analysis of argumentative texts.
