Abstract

This is a research that describes and analyses the argumentative discourse in children from the second level of primary education in Chile. The corpus chosen are recordings from classes at each level (5th - 8th) at a school in Santiago. The argumentative segments of the corpus were isolated and classified according to the pragma-dialectical schemes and types of argument. It was observed that the classes analyzed were appropriate scenarios to develop a reflexive, open, tolerant and respectful dialogue.
