Online Teaching

From now until the resumption of normal classes, we'll be working via distance learning from this website. Each course now has its own dedicated page linked to the 'Courses' page with all the necessary information and details of what I expect from you, so please, keep checking there for updates. Consultations will also be conducted online: details below in 'Office Hours'.

Informal Argument Semantics

A brief overview of my tool for the evaluation of natural language argumentation is now available here.

Short Publication

A short reply to John Wagemans's response to an article of mine in Social Epistemology, has just been made available here.

New Publications

A thematic issue of Research in Language, under my editorship, has just been published, featuring two articles to which I have contributed. Also, the proceedings of the 2018 ISSA conference, are now available. My paper 'On Fallacy and Language' begins at page 505.

Special Issue of SLGR

The special issue of Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric, edited by Marcin Koszowy and me, has just been released. The full issue, including my paper, is available here.

Office Hours

Office hours will still take place on Thursdays at 13.30, but will now be done via skype. My identifier is martindhinton - don't forget the 'd' in the middle. I'll be waiting for you at that time each week. I am also available to talk at other times, if you arrange with me in advance. Please, don't be shy!


Since October 2014, I have been an assistant professor in the Department of English and General Linguistics in the Institute of English studies at the University of Łódź. My research work is in the field of Argumentation Theory. I am a member of the Polish argumentation society ArgDiaP, and of the European APPLY project on public argumentation.
