Subject: LINGUIST List to cut services...

Dear Subscribers,

As many of you already know, we are unfortunately not even close to our
Fund Drive goal of $60,000. In fact, we are still well over $23,000 off
of our target with less than a week left of our Fund Drive!

Therefore, we were wondering if all of our subscribers who have not yet
donated would take the time to fill out this very important questionnaire
regarding which LINGUIST List service they would most like to see cut.

We understand that this does seem to be a drastic measure, but since we
absolutely can not continue our current level of services, nor continue to
add features and improve our site without the extra $23,000, we would like
your input on which features you do not find quite as important to the
advancement of your career and the profession as a whole.

Please select 3 from the following list and we will be sure to discontinue
them at the end of Fund Drive if you do not donate and we fail to reach
our target.


-Posting job announcements

-Archiving a searchable database of all current job announcements
 classified by linguistic subfield/language

-Posting calls for conference papers

-Posting conference announcements

-Archiving a searchable database of all current calls and conferences
 classified by linguistic subfield/language

-Posting queries that help linguists conduct research

-Posting summaries of answers from those queries so that the discipline
 can benefit from the answers

-Posting discussions regarding various controversial topics that help
 foster linguistic opinion and discussion

-Posting FYI, Media, and Software announcements that help keep linguists
 around the world abreast of the latest news in the discipline

-Maintenance of Noticeboard, a classifieds-style listing specific to the
 needs of the linguistics community

-Posting book and journal table of contents announcements of the majority
 of linguistic publications

-Posting the dissertations of new linguists around the world

-Archiving dissertation abstracts and academic papers classified according
 to linguistic subfield and language

-Keeping a large database on linguists around the world, including their
 specialties and institutions

-Support for and creation of the E-MELD project and School of Best
 Practice, a website that helps linguists learn to document and archive
 endangered languages to prevent data loss (

-Maintenance of the most complete listing of languages in the world

-Maintenance of a fully classified database that allows the entire
 LINGUIST List site searchable according to linguistic subfield and
 subject language

-Support and training of 24 graduate students in linguistics, computer
 programming, language digitization, and organizational management (the
 majority of whom go on to further their studies in Ph.D programs).

We would like to thank all 629 subscribers who have already donated, and
add that they do not have to take part in this questionnaire if they do
not wish to -- they have already done more than their share to help
support the discipline.

For the remaining 18,371 subscribers who have not even been able to find
$5.00 to help the cause, we would like to at least know which of our
services you feel can be cut. Please address all questionnaires to with "I CAN DO WITHOUT LINGUIST LIST" in the
subject line, and include 3 of the above services.

Don't see any that you'd like to do without? Well then please donate to
the LINGUIST List and help us continue to support you and your career.

Thank you,

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!
