A spoken dialog system is commonly considered as being rational. The system's rationality is notably transcribed by its sincerity (following Grice's Maxim of Quality) and by the coherence of its mental state,[Lee, 1997]. On the whole, these fundamental hypothesis lead to high complexity, due to the representation of complex epistemic states and due to the complexity of the associated reasoning processes. In previous works,[Saget, 2006], we claim that an epistemic state is not required at the dialog level. The proper mental attitude is (collective) acceptance. The subject of this paper is to introduce the consequences of considering referring acts, as involving (collective) acceptance on referent representation and on reference treatment.
