Ad populumAd misericordiaRed HerringStraw ManAd hominemAd baculumIgnoratio elenchiI want separate arguments for each of these seven categories. They can be short – two sentences each,roughly. Some tips:-They need to be arguments, not just sentences. They should try to argue for some conclusion, using themistakes provided in each category.-Focus on the essential feature of each argument type: an ad hominem should attack a person, a red herringshould change the subject, etc. Look at their definitions for those essential features.
