This paper describes an implemented monolingual Text-to-Text generation system. The system takes monologue and transforms it to two-participant dialogue. The system uses mappings between discourse relations in text and dialogue acts in dialogue. These mappings are extracted from a parallel monologue and dialogue corpus.
