ABSTRACT. In this paper entitled “Communication, dialogue and argumentation” I introduce several dialogue types (persuasion, enquiry, negotiation, information seeking, deliberation and eristic), analyzed by means of three parameters: initial situation, participants’ goals and dialogue’s goal. The dialogue structure, the phases it has to pass through and the rules that have to be observed represent a supplemental matrix for dialogue differentiation or personalization. However, it is the modality of argumentation carrying out within every dialogue type, corroborated with the three functional parameters, that gives the paper an original point of view.
