We describe a method for generating sentences from “keywords” or “headwords”. This method consists of two main parts, candidate-text con- struction and evaluation. The construction part generates text sentences in the form of depen- dency trees by using complementary informa- tion to replace information that is missing be- cause of a “knowledge gap” and other missing function words to generate natural text sen- tences based on a particular monolingual cor- pus. The evaluation part consists of a model for generating an appropriate text when given keywords. This model considers not only word n-gram information, but also dependency infor- mation between words. Furthermore, it consid- ers both string information and morphological information.
