Abstract(in English) In a semi-stereotype document, there is a certain fixed context pattern, and it allows us to write the document easily. Text Structure Markup Language (TSML), proposed by Iwata (1998), describes the roles of text sentences in the markup method. However it does not define any constraint on logic patterns (i.e. constraints on the relations between the roles; it has only 12 patterns of role sequence) and does not have any methods to add new connective expressions. In this paper, we introduce the concept of "Style", and propose the constraint on logic patterns and the method of adding new connective expressions. Based on this idea, we develop a computer aided system for document writing. we show that the system can generate varieties of sentences from a single sentence source through changing of "Styles". To evaluate the implemented system, we asked each of eleven subjects to write a document on this system and to fill out a questionnaire which consists of twelve items. Finally we discuss the advantages and the disadvantages of the system based on the result of these questionnaires.
