We address the challenging task of processing partial multimodal utterances in a mixed-initiative dialogue system for multiple applications such as information seeking, device control etc. Based on four different types of expectations computed by our action planner (aka dialog manager), we distinguish between expected utterances, various degrees of unexpected but plausible utterances, and uninterpretable utterances. We include a description of the backbone architecture and the representation formalisms used.
