Subject: Welcome to the new-look LINGUIST

It has been nearly two years in the making, but LINGUIST List's new
dynamic architecture is now virtually complete. To celebrate, we are
launching our new-look homepage, which we hope will re-introduce all
the facilities, services and useful data available on LINGUIST to our

Perhaps the most beneficial thing about the new design is the enhanced
navigation: with over 2,500 individual pages on the site, it used to
be very easy to get lost. Now it is simple to jump from one section to
another and back again. Every resource on the site is categorized by
linguistic sub-field and where applicable subject language, and the
dynamic searching allows our users to locate data in seconds.

Of course we are sure that improvements can be made, and we would
really appreciate your feedback. If you are attending the LSA
conference in January, please take a moment to stop by our office
hours in the Henry Room:

Friday, 3 January 11:00 AM . 12:00 PM
Saturday, 4 January 2:00 PM . 3:00 PM

For those of you who cannot make it to LSA, please email any
suggestion or comments to (please note the
message below about our vacation!). The feedback we receive from our
users has been extremely useful to us; it is only through your help
that we can improve our site and serve the linguistic community

Subject: LINGUIST on Vacation

The LINGUIST List will be on vacation from December 24th 2002 until
January 5th 2003. Any messages that we receive before midnight on
December 23rd will be posted before we shut down for the
holidays. Except for emergencies, any messages we receive after this
will not be posted until January 6th 2003. Anyone wishing to post an
emergency message please put 'URGENT' in the subject line and send it
to a moderator, as the LINGUIST account will not be properly monitored
during the vacation period.

The LINGUIST crew will be at LSA in Atlanta, and we look forward to
meeting as many of you as possible during our office hours; please
take a moment to drop by and pass on your feedback. The office hours
will be held in the Henry Room of the LSA hotel and are scheduled for:

11-12:00, Friday, Jan 3, 2003
2-3:00, Saturday, Jan 4, 2003

May we also take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful holiday
season and a very successful new year.


Helen, Anthony and all the LINGUIST crew.
