Four different categories of questions for re-establishing communication in French and Bulgarian are discussed: 1) questions which require the speaker to repeat his whole statement; 2) questions which require repetition of part of the statement; 3) questions which require the speaker to confirm whether the person asking the question has understood his statement correctly; 4) questions which require the speaker to continue the statement and / or explain a separate word or word-combination of that statement. In classifying the questions for re-establishing communication, the communicative functions as well as the linguistic (lexical, syntactic and intonational) means of expressing these meanings have been taken into account.
