Dear LINGUIST Subscribers,
In Year 2000, the LINGUIST list announced 386 new books on
linguistics. We also brought you the latest information on journals
and working papers. We posted 237 tables of contents of 110 journals
and 9 working papers last year. These represented every subdiscipline,
and included books on Mathematical linguistics, Computational
Linguistics, and Grammars of Endangered Languages. They included works on
Sociolinguistics, Neurolinguistics, Psycholinguistics and Applied
linguistics, as well as theoretical Phonology, Phonetics, Morphology,
Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics. And reflecting the needs of our
subscribers from all over the world, these books and journals covered a
wide range of languages, including Arabic, Athabaskan, Australian and
African languages, Azari, Chinese, Early Germanic, French, German,
Hungarian, Iranian, Japanese, Native American languages, Old
Indo-European, Polynesian, Spanish, Turkic, Uralic, and Sino-Tibetan.
And last year our book announcement service expanded to include
announcements from 41 different linguistics publishers. We at the
LINGUIST List appreciate all of the help from these supporting
publishers and from the authors who brought Linguist to their
attention. We were able to bring you news of virtually all the new
linguistics books published last year, whether they were listed by
large commercial presses or by small non-profit publishers.
The LINGUIST list not only brings you announcements of books and
journals, but we review them too. Making use of our highly talented
and world wide subscriber base, we reviewed 62 books last
year. Reviews at the LINGUIST list are unlike reviews you will find
anywhere else. We try, wherever possible, to get multiple reviewers to
look at a book, so that we can offer contrasting views on the same
book and encourage discussion. Many book reviews posted in 2000
stimulated lively debate in our discussion (Disc) forum; and we
encouraged the book authors to respond to the reviews. The links to
our books, reviews, and Table of Contents (TOC) pages are:
Many of our subscribers tell us that when they want to find a book on
a particular topic, or buy a book they have heard about, the first place 
they go is the linguist web site. Our topic-oriented search function at

offers one of the easiest ways to find books that interest you. We also
have links to almost all of the major linguistics publishers at .
Unfortunately, this service to our community does not come
cheaply. While our supporting publishers help us very generously
with donations and grants, this support accounts for only about
one-third of the funding we need. Right now, it takes one *full time*
editor to do nothing but bring you book announcements. If you have
ever read a LINGUIST book announcement or a LINGUIST review, or have
bought a book you have read about on LINGUIST, we hope that you will
consider making a tax deductible donation to the list. We have--and
need!--a staff of 10 graduate students, 8 of whom are funded wholly or
partly through your donations. Your contributions not only help
LINGUIST provide services like the book announcements and reviews, but 
they also help these outstanding students achieve their academic goals
So far in our Year 2001 fund drive, we have received $15,286 of the 
$40,000 we need to collect--thanks to the generosity of the persons and
institutions whose names appear at the bottom of this page. If you
have not yet contributed, will you please do so now? 

You can donate by credit card at

or you can send a check made out to "The Linguist Editorial
Support Fund" to:

Or you can simply hit "Reply" to this message, make a pledge by email,
and send your check later. Then we will be able to list you
immediately as one of our donors; and we may be able to reach our goal
(and halt these Fund Drive messages) a bit earlier. Remember, if you
want a shirt, be sure to include your size, style preference, and a
snail-mail address with your check or email pledge.

As a 501(c)3 organization, LINGUIST qualifies for corporate
donation-matching programs; and, of course, your donation is tax

In return for a donation of $25 or more, we would like to send you a
snazzy, dark blue LINGUIST T-shirt or sweatshirt. Go to

for styles and prices, as well as photos of our fashion-conscious
staff modeling this oh-so-elegant casual attire!

And don't forget to find the "Singing Pig" on the LINGUIST Home Page
and click for our sophisticated production, "The LINGUIST Fund Drive

Thank you in advance for your support of LINGUIST.
