Yes, a system which does this has to build a Markov chain from a data
set and then traverse it.

Any program that actually uses Markov chains to generate new text based
on existing input as you've described will necessarily create a Markov
chain. So if what you want is the Markov chain itself, then it's
already in there somewhere.

They're called Markov chains.
