In this paper, the author combines the Relevance theory (Sperber and Wilson) and the conversation theory (part of Levinas's theory of Totality and Infinity). Two principal conclusions are: a) that psychological processes other than intention recognition produce acceleration or impairment of the derivation of assumptions and that they have to be considered part of the study of intention recovery; b) that the process of discourse interpretation is doubly dynamic.
