The Rhetorical Interrogative: Anxiety or Control?
Powers, William G.
Human Communication Research, 4, 1, 44-7, F 77
Defines the rhetorical impreative (i.e. you know?, you see?, okay) as a "non-ah" type of speech disturbance wherein the rhetorical nature of the inherent questions neither seeks nor desires a response. Relates anxiety and floor control to rhetorical interrogatives in experimental testing conditions. (MH)
