Abstract: Much research has been done in the fields of argument mining, persuasiveness and sentiment analysis. Argument mining is a compound operation that encapsulates a lot of processing to reach its analysis state. An argument first must be mined; then, it has to be broken into the claim/s and the premise/s using argument structure identification and the relationship prediction between argument’s various structural aspects. Further, the context of argument is determined using the key aspects of argument. Persuasiveness is identification of influential power that is there in a given input. Sentiment Analysis rotates around identification of emotions and their corresponding intensities. We have attempted to amalgamate all these three 'Argument', 'Sentiment' and 'Persuasiveness' to form an argument persuasiveness prediction model based on sentiment analysis. This paper brings to table a unique approach to solve the classification problem of classifying whether the argument is persuasive or not based on sentiment analysis empirically.

Key words: sentiment analysis, argument mining, persuasiveness, claim, premise, context
