A variety of software for the display and manipulation of linguistic structure
on various Windows, Mac, and Unix-like platforms;
Theorem proving software for to syntax and semantics (monadic second order

Access to corpora, including the Penn Treebank, the ICE-GB British English
corpora, the CHILDES database of child speech, and many others;

modeling language evolution and for designing and using simple languages
for robots and other real and simulated artificial life forms.
UCLA has a strong tradition in related formal studies of human language in
