Argument Mining: Was Ist Das?
  Argument Mining has become an increasingly popular term over the last
few years but it is unclear to what exactly the term refers. It definitely refers to an
area of endeavour within argumentation theory and within computational argumentation
and is likely to become an important research direction in the near future but
it is not clear how we define what is and what is not argument mining so that we
can avoid it becoming the latest buzz-phrase and being left diluted and devoid of
meaning. In this paper we explore some definitions of argument mining and reinterpret
some previous directions in Argumentation research. Our aim is to contribute
towards a clear future distinction as to what counts and to prompt wider discussion
about the directions in which this nascent research venture might head.
