Speech and Synchronizing Animations

I’m having a little trouble syncing and timing speech along with animations.

I know that if you want two or more characters to perform an animation at the same time the script need only be:

@CHARACTER1 is (animation) AND CHARACTER2 is (animation)

Which will trigger two animations at the same time. But what if I want someone to be animated and SPEAKING (or thinking) and the other to simply react to what they’re saying at the same time?

For example one character says something shocking. And I have the other character react startled at what they said (at the moment they say it)

then you change the @ to &

it can look like this

&NAME is ANIMATION AND NAME2 is ANIMATION
NAME
Text

or like this

&NAME is ANIMATION
NAME2 (ANIMATION)
Text
