Dear Subscribers,

The winners for the 2005 LINGUIST List Fund Drive contest have been
selected. We would like to thank all participants, as well as, of
course, the donors who found our hijinks to be fundable.

Limerick Contest

This year's LINGUIST List Poet Laureate, as democratically elected by
all of our subscribers and advisors, is Veronika Koller of Lancaster
University whose beautiful writing should be an inspiration to us all.

There are quite a few linguists whose fate
was improved by LL's up-to-date
job announcements and postings.
Yet site maintenance and hosting
need commitment and money - donate!

Congratulations to Veronika, who wins a one-year subscription to the
John Benjamins (http://benjamins.com) journal of her choice!
