This paper describes a plan­based agent architecture for modeling NL cooper­
ative dialogue; in particular, the paper focuses on the interpretation dialogue and
explanation of its coherence by means of the recognition of the speakers' underlying
intentions. The approach we propose makes it possible to analyze and explain in
a uniform way several apparently unrelated linguistic phenomena, which have been
often studied separately and treated via ad­hoc methods in the models of dialogue
presented in the literature. Our model of linguistic interaction is based on the
idea that dialogue can be seen as any other interaction among agents: therefore,
domain­level and linguistic actions are treated in a similar way.
