Subject: Donations

	As 1999 draws to a close, we'd like to thank our 1999 donors once 
 again and to remind those of you that have not yet made a 
	contribution that LINGUIST is a non-profit organization, with 501C 
	tax status (in the USA). In other words, your donation--should you 
	care to make one--would be tax-deductible. 
	We hope you will--not only because LINGUIST needs money (as 
	usual!) to sustain its services, but also because your contributions 
	help deserving graduate students who serve as editors or computer 
	programmers for LINGUIST. Your donations are currently funding 8 
	students. They not only constitute one of our best crews in years 
	but--as you will see from the list below--are remarkably diverse in 
	interests and nationalities: 
	>From Eastern Michigan University: 
	Scott Fults..
	Received his Bachelor's degree in English from the University of 
	Michigan. He is now finishing up his Master's degree in 
	Linguistics, focusing on formal syntax and semantics. 
	Lydia Grebenyova...
	Born and raised in Russia, Lydia completed her degree in Foreign 
	Languages at the Pedogogical University of Voronezh and is now 
	a graduate student in Linguistics. Long fascinated by language, 
	she is interested in its structural/formal aspects. 
	Naomi Ogasawara.. .
	Is ffrom Chiba prefecture (next to Tokyo) in Japan, where she 
	earned her B.A. in Business Admistration. With 7 years teaching 
	experience (English and Japanese) in Japan, she is finishing up 
	her M.A. in TESOL at Eastern Michigan University. She is also 
	working on a second M.A. in Linguistics. 
	Qian Liao...
	Comes from the southwest of China, where she received her 
	Bachelor's degree in Applied Chemistry in 1992. After working 4 
	years at Luoyang Petrochemical Engineering Corporation as a 
	process engineer, she went to graduate school at the University 
	of Petroleum in 1996. Qian came to the USA in 1998 and is 
	currently studying Computer Science at Eastern Michigan 
	>From Wayne State University: 
	Jody Heullmantel...
	Is an artist specializing in sculpture and photography and has her 
	B.F.A degree from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, 
	Michigan. She has turned her attention to Linguistics and is 
	currently working on her Master's degree. 
	Karen Milligan...
	A former professional dancer, she received her degree in Speech 
	and Drama from Mercy College of Detroit, Michigan. Director of 
	Milligan School of Ballet for 21 years, she is now also persuing a 
	Master's degree in Linguistics and is interested in child language 
	James Yuells...
	Having lived and worked in Russia, James is now back home 
	working on two degrees,a B.A in Linguistics and a B.F.A. in 
	Sudheendra Adiga...
	Comes to us from India where he received his Engineering 
	from the Bangalore University. He is currently a graduate student 
	in the Computer Science program. His specialties include C, Unix 
	Internals, and Web Technologies. 
	(And, by the way. . . . It's not only a great crew but an expanding 
	one. We will shortly be calling for applications for another 
	LINGUIST List-sponsored fellowship at Eastern Michigan U.. So if 
	any of you know of an able linguistics student who would like to 
	pursue an American M.A., we hope you'll bring the LINGUIST 
	fellowship to their attention.)
	This year the crew has been hard at work on several inovations 
	(which you will hear more about when we kick off the 2000 fund 
	drive in March). For example:
	Instituting the Jobs Information page 
	Improving the search engine 
	Starting the LINGUIST cookbook (web-version) 
	Expanding our book announcement service (a record 23 publishers 
	announced linguistic books on LINGUIST last year, so we were 
	able to bring you announcements of almost all the linguistic 
	publications in the field.) 
	And our biggest and most exciting developments, The Multi-list 
	Archiving Project and the Full Site Search Facility (details in the 
	next issue of All) are well underway. 
	As you can see, your money is being put to good use, for without 
	your support all of these projects would be impossible. So if you 
	have not yet contributed to LINGUIST, think about doing so before 
	Dec 23 and getting that tax write-off. 
	You can contribute by credit card at
	or send a check to:
	The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
	c/o Dept. of English Language and Literature
	Eastern Michigan University
	Ypsilanti, MI 48197
	Many of you, of course, have already contributed. The names of our 
	1999 contributors are listed below and at:
	To these 230 generous supporters, we offer our heartiest thanks.
	Helen, Anthony, Andrew
