natural language into formal language, as an important step within the clarification
of expression and the overview of arguments. the variety of normal language
constructions surveyed is broader and richer than in any competing

beginning common sense scholars, and his assurance of the main points makes it necessary for
advanced scholars and pros. there is not any good judgment textbook that comes
even remotely with reference to reaching what that means and Argument does. "
