This paper proposes a method for deal- ing with repairs in action control dialogue to resolve participants’ misunderstanding. The proposed method identifies the re- pair target based on common grounding ratherthansurfaceexpressions. Weextend Traum’s grounding act model by introduc- ing degree of groundedness, and partial and mid-discourse unit grounding. This paper contributes to achieving more natu- ral human-machine dialogue and instanta- neous and flexible control of agents.
