Abstract: Purpose: Presenting an exploratory study of rhetorical questions from an interactional perspective. Theory: Rhetorical questions are analyzed in the framework of dialogical reasoning using the notions of enthymemes and topoi.

Result: Rhetorical questions are used to introduce enthymematic arguments and to facilitate linking together parts of arguments over several utterances.
