  Hi Mike, seems like it might be a germanism:

  aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie

Rabulistik (von lateinisch rabire ˙˙toben˙˙, oder von rabula
˙˙marktschreierischer Advokat˙˙) ist die (zweifelhafte) ˙˙Kunst˙˙,
wortwörtlich ˙˙recht zu haben˙˙ bei einer Sache, die inhaltlich
unehrlich ist und nicht vertreten werden kann; also Wortverdreherei
oder Haarspalterei.
