Subject: Success! Thanks to all our contributors

Dear Subscribers,

We are positively thrilled to announce that our fund drive is over. We
have broken our goal of $48,000 having raised close to $50,000 in
subscriber donations! We cannot thank you all enough for your
contributions. Each one of you has supported LINGUIST in your own
special way during this year. We are especially grateful to our
long-term donors who support LINGUIST year after year.

We appreciate also the encouraging messages that many of you had the
courtesy to send in your pledges, telling us how much you enjoy your
t-shirts, how much you use our site, or just giving us your best
wishes. Your messages helped us to work harder and reach this year's

This has been a very special fund drive, because we used it to launch
major innovations in our web site. There is a new dissertation
abstracts system, a new directory of linguists, a new publications
area, and more, and they are all searchable by subject language. Your
support has helped us develop these. And we will have many more new
features to show you soon.

Another launch was that of our new Swiss bank account. We very much
appreciate the effort of Pius ten Hacken for establishing and
maintaining this account for us. With this account, it is considerably
easier to donate in currencies other than US dollars without using a
credit card.

We would also like to give special thanks to our Advisory Board for
generously providing us with letters to use in the fund drive. We know
that it must get very tiresome hearing from us day after day, and
their "fresh voices" proved to be a welcome relief!

The LINGUIST List succeeds only because you, our subscribers, support
us so generously. Your donations go directly towards paying our
student editors, without whom we could never keep going! As we've
mentioned in our previous letters to you, our student editors not only
provide you with the LINGUIST list and our variety of services, they
also, with your support, go on to successful careers in linguistics
and computer science.

While our fund drive is officially over, and we have reached our
official goal, we will certainly appreciate any donations or pledges
that you still wish to send us. Each year the services we provide you
are enhanced or expanded, and each year the costs of running the list
grow exponentially. Your money never goes to waste. As you may know,
we also have unexpected costs such as major repairs to our server.

As an added bonus for donating, you will be entered into a prize draw,
generously organized by Cascadilla Press. You could win a set of their
IPA fridge magnets, Magnetic Phonetics 2. The last day to enter is
Sunday the 5th, so there is still time to enter the draw! For more
information, visit our fund drive page at

So if you find our services valuable and would like to support us,
please go to to send us your
pledge. From there you have the choice of donating straight away by
credit card using our secure form, or you can send us a cheque later.
If you do send a cheque, please make it payable in US dollars; we get
charged about $50 a time (sic!) to convert currency (no such problems
with a credit card). If you wish to use your own currency but do not
want to use a credit card, we do have our new Swiss bank account which
has considerably lower charges: please see our fund drive page at for more details.

Alternatively, you can hit "Reply" to this message and send us your
pledge right now by email, prior to sending your cheque. The address
to send cheques is as follows:

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

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

Don't forget that in return for a donation of $25 or more, we would
like to send you a gift. We have had a huge number of orders for our
tote bags, which are like our student editors in being stylish and
durable, with the added convenience of being machine washable. Please
visit to see what we have to
offer. Do let us know in your pledge which you would like.

We at LINGUIST really do appreciate your support. We could not
continue without you.

With our sincere thanks,


Anthony, Helen, Andrew, Karen, Naomi, Heather, James, Michael,
Zhen-Wei, Richard, Karolina, Dina, Renee, Steve, Marie, Gayathri,
John, Ljuba, Terry, Simin, Tomoko.
