The predictable nature of certain categories of dialogues can be used both to constrain and to improve the linguistic processing part in speech recognition and understanding. Having looked at several kinds of prediction capabilities as they appear in certain oral dialogue systems, we shall develop the implementation of the predictions in the Yellow Pages (PJ) system. Eventually we shall investigate the influence of dialogue strategies on the linguistic behaviour of the user. We particularly focus on some of the benefits one can gain from using certain forms of co-operation.
