As rhetoric and arguments tend to come up in the classes that I teach, we invariably spend some time talking about enthymemes. An enthymeme is a specific type of logical argument--a syllogism--in which either a premise or the conclusion is left implied or unspoken. So, for example, the statement, "Josh is a good husband because he does the dishes for his wife" is an enthymeme with one given premise (Josh does the dishes for his wife), one given conclusion (Josh is a good husband), and an implied premise (Men who do the dishes for their wives are good husbands).
