Trognon, A., Saint-Dizier, V. (1999). L'organisation conversationnelle des malentendus: Le cas d'un dialogue tutoriel, Journal of Pragmatics, 31, 787-815.

Interlocutionary analysis (Trognon and Brassac 1992) of the sequence containing the misunderstanding reveals that the conversational organization of misunderstanding can tke comple dorms.

In the sequence analyzed, these three moments (T1, T2, and T3) do not follow each other in direct succession but are built into a complex hierarchical structure. These three moments, more particularly T2 and T3, are reproduced several times in a row. Furthermore, our sequence is unique as it illustrates a resolution of the misunderstanding without involving intersubjectivity
