    Assertional or assertoric practice?

    Hello

    I am writing about the practice of asserting something. Is it correct to call this kind of practice for "assertional practice" or "assertoric practice"?

    ? Not 'rhetoric'?

    Re: Assertional or assertoric practice?

    thanks for your reply, but I don't think neither "rhetoric" nor "assertive" can be correct. Asserting is a part of a linguistic practice, like asking, begging, inquiring etc, and "rhetoric" is a best a kind of assertion.
    "Assertive practice" sounds like me like "self-assured/dogmatic practice", which does not denote the specific kind of practice that assertion is.
