To describe the structure of a system, the UML Class Diagram yields
the means-of-choice. Therefor, the Class Diagram provides concepts like class, attribute, operation, association, generalization, aggregation, enumeration, etc. When
students are introduced to this diagram, they often have to solve exercises where
texts in natural language are given and they have to model the described systems.
When analyzing such exercises, it becomes evident that certain kinds of phrases describing a particular concept appear again and again contextualized to the described
In this paper, we present an approach which allows the automatic generation of textual speciﬁcations from a given Class Diagram based on standard phrases in natural
language. Besides supporting teachers in preparing exercises, such an approach is
also valuable for various e-learning scenarios.
