Systemic grammar has been used for AI text generation work in the past, but the Implementa- tions have tended be ad hoc or inefficient. This paper presents an approach to systemic text genera- tion where AI problem solving techniques are applied directly to an unadulterated systemic gram- mar. This approach is made possible by a special relationship between systemic grammar and problem solving: both are organized primarily as choosing from alternatives. The result is simple, efficient text generation firmly based in a linguistic theory.
