This paper describes an interactive graphical environment for computational semantics. The system provides a teach- ing tool, a stand alone extendible gra- pher, and a library of algorithms to- gether with test suites. The teaching tool allows users to work step by step through derivations of semantic repre- sentations, and to compare the proper- ties of various semantic formalisms such as Intensional Logic, DRT, and Situation Semantics. The system is freely available on the Internet.
