Dear Subscribers,

As the end of the year approaches, we at the Linguist List are amazed
at how much the site has grown during 2001. We've published over 3000
issues and gained more than 2000 new subscribers. This means that we
now mail an average of nine issues of LINGUIST to over 15,000
linguistics professionals worldwide, every day!

We've also been busy redesigning our web site and instituting a
database system that will help ensure that all information stored on
LINGUIST is up-to-date, accurate, and easily retrievable.

It has always been our goal to provide the linguistics community with
information about the field as soon as it is available, and to do
so free of charge. While our moderators and review editors donate
their time, LINGUIST now provides fellowships to a crew of 15 student
editors and programmers. As you can imagine, our operating budget has
grown along with our size and services!

As the end of the year approaches, we'd like to point out that
although you can donate to LINGUIST at any time, this may be an
optimal time of year for some of you for tax purposes. Linguist List
is a non-profit organization and receipts can be issued for donations.

As in the past, we have t-shirts with the Linguist logo to give to
donors as a symbol of thanks. We have baby t-shirts as well, just in
time for the holidays. If you wish, we will be happy to send you a
t-shirt with a donation of $25 or more.
You can donate by credit card by using the online form at our
web site:

 or send a check to:

 The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
 c/o Helen Aristar-Dry
 Dept. of English
 Eastern Michigan U.
 Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Another way to donate is by bank transfer.
Gift receiving account for overseas donations:

Eastern Michigan University Foundation Gift Account
Bank of Ann Arbor in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA
Account number: 0100-00753-3.
ABA number (routing number ): 072413735

We're sure you agree that LINGUIST provides a valuable service to the
linguistics community. We hope you know how much we value and
appreciate your support.

Our sincere wishes for a healthy and happy new year !

Best regards,
