Researches on dialogue natural-language inter- action with intellectual "human-computer" systems are based on models of language "human-to-human" interaction, these models representing descriptions of communication laws. An aspect of developing lan- guage interaction models is an investigation of dialogue structure. In the paper a notion of elemen- tary communicative triad (SR-triad) is introduced to model the "stimulus-reaction" relation between utterances in the dialogue. The use of the SR-triad apparatus allows us to represent a scheme of any dialogue as a triad structure. SR-triad structure being inherent both to natural and programming language dialogues, SR-system is claimed to be necessary while developing dialogue processors.
