UNDER CONSTRUCTION --

FEW WORKING LINKS

Some mistakes in reasoning arise from appeals to irrelevant factors or from unsupported assumptions.  Others arise from the misuse of language. Many of both kinds of these mistakes occur so often they deserve special study.


Note that not all irrelevant appeals and unsupported assumptions are fallacies.  Fallacies can only occur in argumentive discourse.  Thus, if no argument is offered, no fallacy can be present.
