### Pumping a Language does not imply regular [duplicate]

I am currently studying the pumping lemma for regular languages and I am trying to come up with an example where even if the language can be pumped it is not regular. Which condition of the lemma ...

### Is there a language that pumps, but is not regular? [duplicate]

I'm looking for a concrete language that can be pumped but is not regular. I understand that closure properties can be used to further test if a language is regular/nonregular.

### Pumping lemma for non regular languages [duplicate]

I read that pumping lemma is sufficient condition to prove non regularity of languages but not necessary condition. I know the first part that it is sufficient is true but not able to understand why ...

### Example of a non-context free language that nonetheless CAN be pumped?

So basically L satisfies the conditions of the pumping lemma for CFL's but is not a CFL (that is possible according to the definition of the lemma).

### Physical significance of pumping length in pumping lemma

Would it be possible to explain the physical significance of pumping length $p$ in pumping lemma for regular languages? Somehow, the physical significance of pumping length $p$ in pumping lemma for ...

### A non-regular language satisfying the pumping lemma

I got a problem to solve, which is to demostrate that the language $L$, given by: $L = \{ab^nc^n\mid n \geq 0\} \cup \{a^kw \mid k\geq 2 \wedge w \in \Sigma^*\}$ Satisfies the pumping lemma. Is not ...

### Showing that a language satisfies the pumping lemma

I am wanting to show that this language fails to show that it is not context-free. So, in essence, it satisfies the pumping lemma If L = {ambncndn | m,n >= 1 } Should I have n be the constant of the ...

### Language that fulfills pumping lemma but is not in RE

I am supposed to find a language $$L\subseteq \Sigma ^*, \Sigma \subseteq \mathbb{N}$$ that fullfills the pumping lemma and is not in RE and not in coRE. I've never constructed a language with a given ...
I need to show that the following language is not regular. $$L = \{\ ab^jc^j\ |\ j \geq 0\ \}\ \cup\ \{\ a^ib^jc^k\ |\ i, j, k \geq 0 \ and\ i \neq 1\ \}$$ There is also a hint that it cannot be ...
I was searching for a difference on both ways of proving that a language is not regular but I didn't came up with much. Let us take the following as an example: $$L = \{ a^n b^n \mid n \ge 0\}$$ ...
