The past twenty years have seen a steady increase in the use of computational methods in the study of argumentation. Although full automation of the analysis of argumentation is not yet possible, smaller software tools that assist human analysts in their tasks are becoming increasingly available. However, because each theory of argumentation comes with its own conceptual framework, software designed to be used with one theoretical approach will not be fully compatible with another theoretical approach. In her research, Jacky Visser suggests that a formal preparation of the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation would facilitate the development of computer tools to support the analysis of argumentative discourse.
