Conflict, quarrel, dissens – these terms are often used synonymously in the specialist literature. They are associated with chaotic activities of the participants of interaction and are regarded as a factor which disrupts communication among them. However, it needs to be taken into account that the dissolution of conflict is one of the aims of the interaction participants and achieving that necessitates following a particular path. The purpose of the present paper is, thus, presenting the methodological framework for analysis of the structure of dissens as a pattern of activity in a particular communicative model. The discussion is based on the theory of sequentiality of dissens activities (see Gruber 1993, 1996), which proves their integrity and purposeful character.
