Dear Linguists,
As many of you may know, in addition to the main list, Linguist also
provides a very valuable service for future and/or non-linguists. This
service, ASK-A-LINGUIST, is staffed by a panel of 63 professional
linguists who share their time and expertise with those interested in
receiving information about questions related to linguistics and

For the ease of its users, ASK-A-LINGUIST is constructed like the
LINGUIST discussion list in which the questions and responses are
organized and archived by thread. By addressing queries that are
relevant to linguistics and language, we feel that ASK-A-LINGUIST
provides the public with a very direct, thorough, and "user-friendly"
source of linguistic information.

We have added links to the personal pages of over half of our
distinguished volunteers so that readers can simply click to connect
to these linguists' personal web pages. ASK-A-LINGUIST has also
recently added a new feature called Ask A Linguist Tutor, which
welcomes questions from students or teachers regarding any matter
having to do with language, languages, or linguistics. It is staffed
by a panel of volunteer linguistic majors from the University of

We would like to thank the ASK-A-LINGUIST panel members, as well as
the LINGUIST subscribers for their continued support. Their
contributions and suggestions enable us to improve and maintain this
beneficial resource. And although ASK-A-LINGUIST is provided as a free
service staffed by a generous panel of experts who volunteer their
time and expertise, we still need our staff of editors to update,
improve, and expand this useful facility. Without the continued
financial support of the linguistic community, LINGUIST would be
unable to offer ASK-A-LINGUIST--the service that both the general
public and blooming young linguists have found so valuable.

Today is the 5th day of the 2001 Fund Drive. We have received
$17,296 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.
