Meaning And Guidelines Of Arguments  August 18, 2012

Arguments are like evidences which people used to make the claim true. Argument is the base of academic writing. The arguments are called the reasons due to which the claim could be rejected or accepted. The acceptance of the hypothesis in the research/thesis depends upon the series of arguments. The writer should be very clear about the difference between the claim and the arguments.

For a good research it is necessary for the writers to create a thesis statement which would be debatable means there could be many more arguments upon the claim. If the writer is interested to write a persuasive essay then it is necessary for the writer to create a debatable research statement.

The thesis statement should be narrow, means the scope of the statement should be not so broad, with the narrower scope it is easy for the researcher to give arguments, so narrower scope leads to the effective series of arguments. Focus on the statement is very necessary to create logical arguments. There are different ways to have a focus on the thesis topic with the help of the claims; following are the kinds of claims:

Fact/definition, this claim facilitates the writers to argue regarding the definition of some word etc.

Cause/Effect, through this claim, the researcher can argue regarding the cause of the word has different effects on the people etc.

Value, the claim regarding value means that the researcher argues about what is or is not of value in the culture, in family etc.

Solutions/Policies, these claims let the writer argue about the particular solutions and policies.

Argument’s Organization

Following are the essentials through which one can organize the arguments in a thesis:

Claim, this is the ingredient around which the whole thesis data circulates, and the writer argue just because of the claim.

Data, the writer must write the data related with the claim.

Warrant, the writer must follow the bridge means that he/she must know that in which way the evidences/arguments supports the claim.

Backing, it is also known as the foundation which means extra awareness related with the warrant to support the claim. The writer can also write the counterclaim which totally disagrees with the above mentioned claim in the thesis.

Warrant is very essential in thesis to create and develop a very good argumentative essay. While writing the argument essay it is very important for the writer to remain focused towards the readers because they are the readers and the author wants to change their minds. The researcher should write the arguments very clear in the thesis, because they are the asset of the whole document. The layout of the arguments should be in such a way that they should relate with each other and with the claim. The good arguments are brief and well written and encompassed with logic and reasoning. The arguments without the solid reasoning are of no use for the reader because the result is very sure on the part of the readers that they will not accept the view point of the author.

The purpose of academic writing is just to give the point and then support that point with the help of the supporting material, and to get that material it is important for the researcher to be well read. The essays with arguments are more interesting to read than the descriptive essay because in these essays you are learning something new than the ground realities.
