In the previous publications we review how an essay is structured, the characteristics that it should contain, how to choose the themes and delimit them, and how to make an attractive introduction for the readers. Well, it’s time to focus on how to do the development or the argumentation of the essay now that we have the necessary information on the subject we will be talking about.
How to do the development or the argumentation of my essay?
Thus, in our development we must expose our arguments in a linear and logical way to gradually support our hypothesis. In this sense, before starting writing, it is good to make synoptic charts or tables in which we develop in broad strokes the content of our essay, including the arguments that we will use to support our writing to guide us and choose the optimal order to treat.
Claudia Montoya also recommends (in the article cited above) how to do the development or the argument that, at the time of writing, we take into account the following points: combine the old or known information with the new one; make sure that subjects and predicates are chained; take care of the congruence of the verb tenses; not to subject the reader to an excess of new information, because we could saturate it; not to introduce abruptly and without contextualization referents or new information, because our argument loses strength; use suitable binding particles for the cause and effect relationship; avoid lexical or grammatical ambiguities; and suppress unnecessary repetitions of words, sentences, or particles of the sentence.
It would be good to read a little about the syllogisms to learn a little better how to do the development or the argumentation of our works, since they, despite belonging to the field of logic, will help us much better to understand the structure of the argument.
