Dear Subscribers,

LINGUIST List is taking a break for the Holidays and for LSA from 22
December 2003 until 11 January 2004. During this time we will not be
checking email, and there will be no new information added to the
website, since everything submitted through a form must be approved by
one of our editors. However, the website will still be accessible.

We will also stop posting issues during this time. But we guarantee
that everything submitted by Sunday, 21 December 2003 will be posted
before we shut down. Anything submitted after this date will not be
posted until Monday 12 January 2004.

Come visit us at LSA!

Most of the LINGUIST List crew is going to LSA 2004 in Boston. We will
be having office hours in the Conference Room. Stop by and meet us!
Here is our schedule:

Friday, 9 January 2004 2p - 3p
Saturday, 10 January 2004 2p - 4p

During our office hours we will be soliciting feedback on our regular
services and also demonstrating some of the software and facilities
LINGUIST List has created as part of the E-MELD project. In
particular, we would like to show you our web-based data input
facility FIELD and the E-MELD School of Best Practices in the Digital
Documentation of Language.

E-MELD is also presenting a symposium at LSA entitled "Endangered Data
vs. Enduring Practice: Creating Language Resources that Last." If you
are interested in the digital documentation of language, please join
us from 9-11 am. Friday, Jan 9, 2004 in the Republic Ballroom of the
LSA conference hotel.

Happy Holidays!
