This chapter will provide a more technical approach to the standard (non-CTT) dialogical framework at the play level. The next chapter ( 5) will do the same at the strategy level. It will then be possible to introduce local reasons in the dialogues and thus start making it explicit that dialogues are games of giving and asking for reasons; in this sense, the elements contributing to the meaning as use will appear in the object language. The link to equality in action will then be spelled out in the following two chapters ( 6 and  7), based on what will be presented in the next two chapters ( 4 and  5).
