Definition: Argumentative



What is the dictionary definition of Argumentative?

Dictionary Definition


adj. the characterization of a question asked by the opposing attorney which does not really seek information but challenges the truthfulness or credibility of the witness. Since such a question is not allowable, often it is the basis of an objection before the question is answered, much like irrelevant, immaterial or hearsay. The definition of argumentative is somewhat vague, and different judges hear it differently. A simple example would be “Do you believe you should pay your mistress’ rent before catching up with delinquent child support?” or “Do you think that bloody glove just walked over there?
