Argumentation schemes are structures or tem- plates for various kinds of arguments. Given the text of an argument with premises and con- clusion identified, we classify it as an instance of one of five commonschemes, using features specific to each scheme. We achieve accura- cies of 63–91% in one-against-others classifi- cation and 80–94% in pairwise classification (baseline = 50% in both cases).
