This paper presents an open domain monologue generation method for non-task-oriented dialogue systems to be able to speak their opinions and impressions as a speaker. To generate monologues, we acquire suitable utterances that contain a given topic from Twitter. Our method determines whether utterances have cohesion or not using the support vector machine and concatenate them in a row. It scores the utterance sequences from the aspect of their humor, unexpectedness and speciality in the given topic. We acquire the utterance sequences that ranks high as monologues. Results of an experiment demonstrate that our method can generate amusing and semantically appropriate monologues.
