LKB stands for Linguistic Knowledge Builder. The LKB system is a grammar and lexicon development environment for use with constraint-based linguistic formalisms. The LKB software is distributed by the DELPH-IN (formerly LinGO) initiative, a loosely-organized consortium of research groups working on unification-based grammars and processing schemes. The download page for the LKB system and other available DELPH-IN software and grammars is http://lingo.delph-in.net/.
The LinGO English Resource Grammar (ERG; with associated lexicons and so on) may be downloaded as erg.tgz. Note that it requires at least 250 MBytes of RAM to run with the LKB. A Knoppix-based virtual machine (for VirtualBox) with LKB, Trollet and some grammars incl. ERG pre-installed is also freely available for download.
The LKB system includes a tactical generation capability.
The LKB system is freely available as Open Source and there is no registration process.
