“This isn’t a debate. Go to bed.” 「これは討論ではない。もう寝なさい。」


A debate is a formal kind of argument, with rules about who gets to talk and how much. Some schools have debate clubs, and kids may be instructed to defend a viewpoint, to learn how to present a good argument. An informal conversation in which both sides argue using facts can also be called a debate, even if it has no formal rules.
