Reasoning and Argumentative Complexity
Dr. Cristián Noemi

The main objective of this paper is to propose a model of complexity, texture or argumentative density from the theoretical framework of text linguistics. To this effect, I have explored both the ability underlying the activity of speaking (the ?????e?a) as the product of this competence (the ?????). From the first perspective, some cognitive operations involved in this knowledge during the activity of discursive production are suggested which, as has been proposed, are projected onto the discourse in the form of more or less discourse complexity, texture or density. From the second, a normative model of the level of complexity of the product is proposed on the basis of the relational texture of the propositions and on the notion resulting of argumentative coherence.
