The work in this paper is based on the claim that collaborative dialogue involves taking into account how much information an utterance conveys, in the sense that it thereby shows how it is connected to the linguistic and extra-linguistic context shared by speaker and hearer, by system and human user. I introduce a notion of information enrichment to handle this phenomenon, and discuss information enriched utterances in human-human dialogue and in the generation component of a dialogue system.
