We present a robotic dialogue system built on casebased reasoning. The system is capable of solving references and manage sub-dialogues in a dialogue with an operator in natural language. The approach to handle dialogue acts and physical acts in a unison manner together with the use of plans and subplans makes the system very flexible. This flexibility is used for learning purposes where the operator teaches the system a new word and the new knowledge can directly be integrated and used in the old plans. The learning from explanation capability makes the system adaptable to the operatorís use of language and the domain it is currently operating in. The implementation of a case-based planner suggested in the paper will further increase the learning and adaptation degree.
