A two-level natural language generation system for situation and action descriptions (SADs) of a simulated assembly robot is presented. In the first step, multimodal information is used to obtain a conceptual representation (CR) of an event. The second step is the parallel, incremental surface realization of utterances from the robot's perspective based on the CR. Theoretical issues addressed are semantics of SADs and distribution of lexical and syntactic processing, leading to a natural type of incrementality in NLG.
