Most systems, based on Mann and Thompson's formulation of Rhetorical Structure Theory (Mann and Thompson, 1988), have adopted simplified solutions to their expression. If, for example, an action, X, and a purpose for that action, Y, must be expressed, a standard form such as "Do X in order to Y" will be generated.
