The naive and simplicistic idea of communication in terms of semantic transparency is just one side of the different aspects of communication acts. From our experience we know well that communication can be successful without being ideal, perfect and unproblematic. In general communication can be considered as a planned attitude strategically aimed at achieving intentions, and as a direction of practical reasoning. This attitude co-ordinates the relationship among intention, plan and performance in agreement with context constraints and opportunities. Its aim is to get the utmost effectiveness in order to realize a communicative intention.
