Rhetorical Questions
Show Notes

Rhetorical questions are common in academic discussions and debates.  They sound like normal questions, sometimes with stronger intonation, but they are not real questions, and the speaker does not expect an answer.  Rhetorical questions are used to state a point the speaker believes is obvious, and to express attitudes such as surprise, doubt, and agreement.
