Abstract. We propose a representation of imperatives in computational systems,
and a multi-agent dialogue protocol to argue over these. Our representation treats
a command as a presumptive argument for an action to be executed by a desig-
nated agent, together with a set of associated critical questions whose answers
may defeat the presumption. The critical questions enable the identification of
attacks on the uttered command, and so can be used to specify a dialogue game
