A two-level natural language generation system tbr situation and action descriptions (SADs) of a sinm- lated assembly robot is presented, in the first step, multimodal inibrmation is used to obtain a concep- tual representation (CR) of an event. The second step is the lmrallel, incremental surface realizatiou of utterances from the robot's t)erspecl;ive bascxl on the CR. Theoretical issues addressed are semantics of SAI)s and distribution of lexical and syntactic pro- cessing, leading to a natural type of in(:rementality in NLG.
