This directory contains software and linguistic resources distributed by the
LinGO network, a loosely-organized consortium of research groups working on
unification-based grammars and processing schemes.  Some of the resources that
are available from this site were developed at CSLI Stanford, others developed
in close collaboration with LinGO network members world-wide.  Everything that
is released through this site is available under an open-source license, where
most of the packages should include their separate `README' file that provides
copyright and development history. 

Note that the directory organization makes a distinction between the `stable'
release version of these resources (in its own directory) and the more recent
`snapshot' versions (in subdirectories of `build', labeled by date).  The most
recent build is available as `latest'.  While the `stable' versions tend to be 
tested more (therefore, releases are relatively infrequent), the snapshots will
often include extra functionality and may correspond more closesly to what is
in active use by LinGO developers and partners.  The latest `stable' release,
currently, is dated 2002-11-20 and may not be compatible with some recent OS
versions (e.g. Linux with kernel versions upwards of 2.4).

     Linguistic Knowledge Builder (LKB) --- Grammar Engineering Platform
       (Ann Copestake, John Carroll, Rob Malouf, Stephan Oepen, et al.)
                         http://www.delph-in.net/lkb
     -------------------------------------------------------------------

Information about setting up the LKB is at 

  http://wiki.delph-in.net/moin/LkbInstallation

The LKB documentation is now mainly contained in the book, Implementing Typed
Feature Structure Grammars, Copestake, 2002, published by CSLI publications.  
The second half of the book is a user manual for the LKB and this portion is 
freely available online, as is the chapter that takes a beginner through the 
main commands.  Please see `http://cslipublications.stanford.edu/lkb.html'

  - lkb_source.tgz

    Source code for the LKB.  Requires a suitable ANSI Common-Lisp environment,
    e.g. Allegro CL, Macintosh CL, LispWorks, CMU CL or CLISP (no graphics for
    the last two Lisp systems).

  - lkb_linux.x86.32.tgz

    LKB runtime binary for i386 Linux, using OpenMotif 2.x; 
    you may need to install Motif from `http://www.openmotif.org/'.

  - lkb_solaris.tgz

    LKB runtime binary for sparc Solaris 2.6 (and upwards); Motif should be
    available in `/usr/dt' as part of the core operating system.  Note that
    this binary is not available in recent builds.

  - lkb_windows.zip

    LKB runtime binary for M$ Windows (95, 98, NT, or 2000; XP not tested yet, 
    but may just work); no Motif required; needs WinZip (or equivalent) for
    installation.  Note that this binary is not available in recent builds.

  - lkb_windows.tgz

    LKB runtime binary for M$ Windows (95, 98, NT, or 2000; XP not tested yet, 
    but may just work); no Motif required; needs CygWin tar(1) and gzip(1) for
    installation.  Note that this binary is not available in recent builds.

  - lkb_macintosh.sitx

    LKB runtime binary for Mac OS X (10.3; 10.4 not tested yet, but should
    work); needs Stuffit Expander for installation.

  - lkb_data.tgz

    Various grammars, large and small, implemented in the LKB; including two
    series of grammar engineering exercises used in courses taught at ESSLLI
    1998 and 2000, respectively.

      English Resource Grammar (ERG) --- Broad-coverage HPSG of English
             (Dan Flickinger, Rob Malouf, Emily Bender,et al.)
      -----------------------------------------------------------------

  - erg.tgz

    Source-code release of the ERG, a fairly wide-coverage HPSG implementation
    for (American) English; works for parsing and generation in the LKB and PET
    (and other systems implementing the same formalism).
