During argumentation, people persuade their au- dience using a variety of strategies, e.g., hypo- thetical reasoning, reasoning by cases and ordinary premise-to-goal arguments. In this paper, we of- fer an operational definition of the conditions for pursuing these strategies, and incorporate into a Bayesian argument-generation system a mechanism for proposing applicable argumentation strategies, generating specific arguments based on these strat- egies, and selecting a final argument.
