Subject: The LINGUIST Mailing List Archive - Fund Drive Day 9

Dear Linguists,

As you may know, during the current fund drive we decided to tell you
about the different services which LINGUIST has begun offering over
the last few years. One of the projects we began last year is
archiving other linguistic mailing lists on our site.

The major goal of this project is to facilitate your research by
collecting at one site all of the information that passes through
linguistic mailing lists. As things now stand, it's very difficult for
researchers to find out what's being discussed on mailing lists.
There are a lot of reasons for this. In many cases the lists are on
servers which don't allow archiving: all material, therefore, is
essentially gone once it is posted, unless some member of the list
chooses, as a public service, to keep copies of the postings. In some
cases the lists die, and the material disappears along with them. One
of the major reasons, however, is simply that the lists are often just
plain hard to find.

The LINGUIST project is not complete, and will never be complete as
long as there are any linguistic lists that we do not archive. But it
is our commitment to archive all lists that agree to join us, and ensure
that access to them is available at a central site. 

Furthermore, we have put in place a multilist search facility, which you
can find at the URL:

With this search facility, a researcher can search all the archived
lists at once. We hope this will be very useful!

We have been *very* successful at gaining the cooperation of
listowners. And we hope we get more! (If your list would like to
join, we'd love to hear from you.) We are now archiving no less than
66 lists. You can access the archive at the URL:

Some of these lists are not simply archived on our site. They are
also hosted on the LINGUIST Listserv machine. We would like to point
out that we are willing to set up new linguistic lists on our site, as
well as host existing lists for those who do not have good listserv
facilities. But of course, it would not be possible for The LINGUIST 
List to maintain this service without the funding which your donations 

Today is the 9th day of the 2001 Fund Drive. We have received
$22,841 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:

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

snazzy, dark blue LINGUIST T-shirt or sweatshirt. Go to
