Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

As many of you have already found out, this year we have thought of yet
another wonderful, exciting way to thank our generous donors. How, you
may ask...why, through LINGUIST List Brain Teasers!

Each week we will unveil a brain teaser in the form of a riddle or
question, and everyone who donates $25.00 or more gets a chance to answer
this question and win a wonderful prize donated to us by one of our
supporting publishers!

Last week's question was:

	*"What happened to the syntactician? She was here yesterday but
	 gone today..."

Congratulations to Leslie Saxon who correctly answered the riddle with:

	*She moved without a trace!

Leslie has won a one-year subscription to Mouton de Gruyter's journal,
Theoretical Linguistics!


This week's question is:

	*"What is the strangest TRUE linguistic fact that you have

If you think you may know the answer, you can win this fabulous prize
donated by Mouton de Gruyter:

	*A one year subscription to Linguistics!

HURRY! This prize will only be offered through Wednesday March 31, 2004!

All winners will be announced on the LINGUIST List and LINGUIST List

Thank you again for your generous support!

Subject: How to Donate...

This Year the LINGUIST List hope to raise $60,000. This money will go
to help keep the List running, by supporting all of our Student Editors
for the coming year.

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST! 

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form, at:

You can also pledge right now and pay later, at:

For all information on donating, including information on how to
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

If you have already pledged to LINGUIST and would now like to pay 
by credit card, please go to:

and select 'PAY PREVIOUS PLEDGE' as the Type of Payment from the
dropdown list provided.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University
and as such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is
a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number
is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against your federal and
sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will
match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this
entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us
a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer.
This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
