Abstract(in English) We propose a dialogue model based on information transfer. In most classical models, plan-based approach is used, in which a dialogue is regarded as a sequence of actions. However, it is more natural to regard it as a sequence of inner states representing agents' knowledge and belief, especially for the dialogue whose goal is a kind of information acquisition. In this paper, we introduce a new modal operator need-to-know, and propose the framework based on knowledge and belief. It can give an account for the utterances of requesting-information and giving-information in a uniform manner. We also show that we can explain the processes of confirmation and the detection of mishearing in this framework.
