This paper proposes a tag line generating systemusing information extracted from the web. Tag lines sometimes attract attention even when they consist of indirect word group of the target. We use web information to extract hidden data and use several tag line corpora to collect a large number of tag lines. First, knowledge related to the input is obtained from the web. Then, the proposed system selects suitable words according to the theme. Also, model tag lines are selected from the corpora using the knowledge. By inserting nouns, verbs and adjectives into model tag lines’ structure, candidate sentences are generated. These tag line candidates are selected by the suitability as a sentence using a text N-gram corpus. The subjective experiment measures the quality of system-generated tag lines and some of them are quite comparable to human-made ones.
