Trait (of word): The trait of a word corresponds to the one of the attributive or characteristic aspect of its mean. Example: the verb "to walk" has several traits: the fact of advancing, with feet, slowly, etc. Transmodality: That represents the physical switch of a modality to another. Uncertainty: Characterise the uncertainty of agent on the veracity of a proposal. Virtual clone: like-human entity represented in 2 or 3 dimensions. Voice recognition: Signal processing techniques which return a sequence of recognised words.

Gestures, postures, gaze, facial gestures, prosodic cues, effects, cultural dimension, micro-social proxemic and some others are quite as important [COS 97]. 1 Layered model of communicative objects involved in a multimodal human-computer dialogue For example, gestures are involved in thinking as much as language [MAC NEIL, 1992]. They can illustrate some mental images in the scene of speech, which the language cannot always do in a satisfying manner4. They make it possible, in other cases, to replace word groups and/or word traits5, thus dispersing the message on two communication modalities (which are natural language and gestures).
