A domain-independent, reusable, general text generation system for Chinese is presented in this paper. This system combines the template method and generation technology in a single formalism, which enables the system to maintain both flexibility and efficiency. At the same time, in order to maintain the generatorís independence of application domains, An upper model is designed to interface the different application and the general generation system, which enables the systemís adaptability to different application domains. The upper model is a kind of semantic hierarchy. It is organized according to the semantic relationship between predicates and their arguments, nouns and their modifiers. Tests show that the generation system embodies good adaptability to different application domains and good performances.
