This paper is concerned with rhetorical argumentation that aims to alter the beliefs of the listener, and so to influence his future actions, as opposed to classical argumentation that is concerned with the generation of arguments, usually as logical proofs, for and against a given course of action. Rhetorical argumentation includes rhetoric moves such as Threat, Reward and Appeal. Rhetorical argumentative utterances generated by an agent contribute to the strength of its relationship with the listener. This paper examines advice and the rhetoric particle “I advise you …” that may be used to strengthen such relationships.
