im pretty sure rederick is the title given to someone who is a skillful arguer - even if they don't believe in what they're arguing.
I believe you mean the word: Rhetoric.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
1: the art of speaking or writing effectively: as a: the study of principles and rules of composition formulated by critics of ancient times b: the study of writing or speaking as a means of communication or persuasion 2 a: skill in the effective use of speech b: a type or mode of language or speech ; also : insincere or grandiloquent language 3: verbal communication
I believe you are referring to "rhetoric", which is frequently pronounced "rederick". It can mean two different things depending on the connotation: it can be "the art of using language persuasively" or, more common now, "the disingenuous use of language to manipulate people" (Oxford English Dictionary)
