The object-of-study 'dialogue' and its representation

The basic issue of Dialogue Analysis draws on the problem of how to represent the object 'dialogue'.There is no generally agreed concept of dialogue; various perspectives can be taken which result in different concepts of dialogue and correspondingly in different methodologies of Dialogue Analysis.Besides competence models which search for underlying rules and performance models which focus on ever-varying spoken language or individual inferences, there is the model of competence-in-performance which tries to grasp how human beings come to grips with dialogue in real life.

Papers are invited which address this basic question of the relationship between the object dialogue and the methodology of representation, be it within a rule-governed model of communicative competence or starting from spoken discourse or be it within the .model of the mixed game. which mediates between order and disorder and combines regularity and individuality. We also invite researchers to submit proposals that more generally address the connections of representation with dialogue.
