%X This paper is devoted to introduce an axiomatic model to distinguish what functions are suitable for measuring the degree of contradiction between two Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy sets. After stating the needed background, in section 2, we justify and present the axioms that a contradiction measure must satisfy, and the first examples are set out. After motivating the necessity of achieving some definition for modelling the continuity, in the next section we introduce the concepts of semicontinuity from below and semicontinuity from above for contradiction measures. Finally, in section 4, some families of contradiction measures are constructed.
