Summary/Abstract: The French and Italian communication schools have contributed to develop the notion of "communication contract". This article presents the vision of the French, Patrick Charaudeau, about the communication contract, which starts from the idea that the communication situation is the generating factor of any speech. Depending on the communication situation, the actors of communication must obey specific rules, which they are supposed to be familiar with. Depending on these communication situations, certain expectations are created, which are not always respected by the interlocutors. Thus, we can say that the "communication contract" is not always respected. Through the interaction of actors, those who know the "rules" of the communication situation can rebuild the "communication contract" in their favor.
