Abstract / Description of output

We argue that negotiation over the meaning of terms in a statement is part of human discussion and that it can lead to richer theories. We describe our preliminary model of semantic negotiation and discuss theoretical examples which we hope to implement. Finally we consider how semantic negotiation fits into existing work on argumentation.
