2002 Proceedings of the annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society  
This paper deals with the use of imaginary or fictive questions as argumentative devices that can structure on-line discourse and reasoning in legal settings. The theoretical perspective used is the theory of conceptual integration networks or conceptual blending (Fauconnier & Turner 1996, 1998, 2002).
