Abstract

Basing on the Argumentum Model of Topics (AMT) within the general framework of a pragma-dialectical viewpoint on argumentation, this paper analyses the role of <i>argumentation from analogy</i> in international migrants&#8217; decision-making processes on the basis of a corpus of interviews to migrant mothers resident in the greater London area. Reasoning from analogy allows evaluating pragmatic decisions &#8211; such as leaving one&#8217;s home country, staying over in a foreign country, etc. &#8211; in terms of feasibility and reasonableness.
