The conversational Implicature has three meaning used by researchers which are: a linguistic theory looks for the hidden significance, a linguistic phenomenon in dialogues and a hidden meaning related with obvious one. This paper collects all the three meanings in a single vision. Then, it studies the deviation in the question structure Al-Jahiz Albeean wel Tabeen by using principles of conversational Implicature theory which helps in understanding meanings of question. The paper shows some deviations from Principle of co-operation and other principles which the given theory involves such as: Principle of quantity; Principle of relevance/ relation and Principle of manner. Then the researcher decided not to abide by these principles in the definition of Implicature in the statements which include: Intimidation, Mockery, Certainty, Concealment, and the ability to act.
