Subject: Queries in 2000 - Fund Drive Day 4

Dear Linguists,

As many of you already know, the Query issues (Qs) are a very popular
feature of LINGUIST List. In the year 2000, over 600 of you submitted
a query to the list.

Queries submitted this year have been on all subjects, from reference
requests to judgements on syntactic constructions. They have covered
languages from Old Frankish to Navaho.

The large number of summaries (SUMs) of the answers posted suggests
that the service works rather efficiently, and that those who seek do
indeed find the answers. Moreover, the linguistic community, as a
whole, benefits from the research included in those summarized

As with all LINGUIST issues, both Queries and Summaries are archived
for your future reference on the LINGUIST website. And as with most
services on LINGUIST, the Qs feature is completely free. But of
course, it would not be possible for The LINGUIST List to maintain
this popular service without the funding which your donations provide.

Today is the 4th day of the 2001 Fund Drive. We have received
$16,541 of the $40,000 we need to collect. We heartily thank all who
have contributed; their names are listed at the bottom of this page.

If you would like to make your contribution in support of the 
Queries service and The LINGUIST List in general, you can do so 
now by donating via our secure credit card form at:

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

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

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.
