While discourse materialized in texts delivers static information, dialogue is dynamic and consists of two interacting discourses. Once written, a discourse content is unalterable and will remain as it is for its future readers. On the contrary, a dialogue enables exchange information flows, to complement and to merge them in a composition, which is not known in advance. Both dialoguing parties provide feedback, influence, or modify the final content along with the course of the conversation.
