Dear Subscribers,

As many of you know, in addition to our mailing list, we have a
website, . On this page you will find searchable,
archived editions of all LINGUIST issues since its inception in
December of 1990. This site also has over 2,000 pages of data, most of
which are linked to hundreds of other linguistic and
linguistics-related websites. Our main site receives over 300,000 hits
per week.

Near the top of the LINGUIST homepage is a category devoted to The
Profession. Here you will find lists of Conferences, Linguistic
Associations, Funding Sources, and Linguistic Programs, as well as a
comprehensive Directory of Linguists and their Personal Pages. In
addition, you will find a link to all Job postings, complete with
search capability, and the newly instituted Jobs Information page. And
the recently added link to the searchable archive of 80 additional
linguistic mailing lists provides a wealth of other linguistic

Under the heading, Research and Research Support, you will find
linguistic papers, bibliographies, and projects. There is also the
popular Dissertation Abstracts page; it too is quickly and 
comprehensively searchable.

In the Publications category, we have links to Book Announcements and
Reviews, Journals, and Publishers. The Pedagogy section provides links
to Classes and Syllabi, as well as ESL and EFL materials. There is a
Language Resource page, which houses a wealth of information about
Languages and Language Families, as well as links to hundreds of
online Dictionaries. Our Computer Support pages offer links to fonts,
including numerous IPA fonts, as well as to the truly valuable Software

Rounding out our website is the popular Ask-a-Linguist service, and
The LINGUIST Cookbook, "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about
Food... A Feastschrift in Honor of Jim McCawley", with recipes
contributed by linguists from all over the world 
( ).

The LINGUIST website is becoming a truly comprehensive, truly
international archive of electronic information and meta-information.
But we need your help to see it through to completion. In this year's
fund drive, our goal is $40,000. Our generous contributors have given 
a grand total of $21,556 to date; their names appear at the bottom of 
this message. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to one 
and all.

But, we aren't there yet; we still have to raise $18,444. If you
can help, we'd love to hear from you. There are three convenient
methods by which you can make your donation to LINGUIST. 

You can donate via our secure credit card form at:

or by sending your check to:

The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
Dept. of English
Eastern Michigan U.
Ypsilanti, MI USA 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.

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! Please remember to include 
your snail-mail address, along with your size preference with your check or
e-mail pledge. 
And don't forget to find the "Singing Pig" on the LINGUIST Home Page and
click for our sophisticated production, "The LINGUIST Fund Drive

Once again thank you all for your continued support of LINGUIST.
