Abstract
There is no clear consensus about a difference between explanation and argument. After having explained why traditional points of view of informal logic raise a problem, I'll argue for a linguistic point of view on this question and show how rhetorical strategic moves can exploit the blurry frontier between explanation and argumentation. A third category seems necessary to introduce - "apparent explanation" - and two French connectives - "car" and "parce que" - will be used to describe differences.
