2 Relevancy  One of the most important aspect of constructing your argument (b/c your argument is from motion, and for motion to be approved or to be opposed by the adjudicator)  But... Many people fails to make their argument relevant to the motion  E.g. THW call a local referendum for a natural resource project  ➡ people down the line are the one who are most affected, thus have a right to decide their fate  ➡➡ NOT relevant!(b/c you haven’t proposed for “local referendum” yet!)

3 Why Nuance Extraction?  Each motion has different nuances, different background context  Adj.Core sets...  ➡ Theme of the motion  ➡ Specific wording of the motion (e.g. ban/criminalize/morally condemn/oppose)  ➡➡ Requirement of NUANCED / PRECISE ARGUMENT!!

4 Method of Extracting the principle ➡➡ Perspective of stakeholder ( モーションの当事 者の気持ちになれよ !) ➡➡ (Relevant) Comparison with other methods ( モーションが要求する方法の独自性・優位性を説 明しろ !) ➡➡ Conceptual Analysis of the Word ( モーションの 中にある単語はどういう意味か分析しろ !) ➡➡ Broader perspective (intrinsic nature + surrounding element) ( モーションに関係ある事象が もつ固有の性質や周辺的な要素を考察しろ !)

5 Principle Adjudication  Given that you’ve extracted a nuance from your motion, adjudicate whether or not the principle that you are trying to make is valid/justified or not  Why, just/good? From what perspective? ➡ Usage of big word, in the specific context ➡ Exclusivity ➡ Object-based extraction

6 Exercise/Examples  THW criminalize adultery  THBT states that don’t provide free tertiary education should subsidize career paths for students that is useful for the state  THW limit the construction of high-value residential properties  THW forbid gambling to people with immediate families  THBT priests should report the confession of serious crimes to the police  THW decriminalize graffiti in public spaces  THBT sex-tourism does more harm than good in developing world
