Calling all logicans: fallacies

  1. Mar 8, 2004 #1
    I have a logic test in two days and I'm going over a chapter in fallacies. I am having trouble getting good examples for a few fallacies and would appreciate if a few of you could make some up that are easy to understand for the follow:

    fallacy of accent
    fallacy of amphiboly
    fallacy of accident
    fallacy of poisening the well

    I have a list of 26 others that I am trying to memorize, but those above I can't get a clear idea of. Can someone shed some light?
