Using the information state approach to dialogue analysis, we sketch an account of negotiative dialogue starting from Sidner's artificial negotiation language. This account is adapted to the Questions under Discussion (QUD)-based information state used by the GoDiS system. Some problems with this account are pointed out, and we attempt to analyse why these problems arise and how they might be resolved. Finally, an alternative account to negotiative dialogue is outlined.
