Subject: The LINGUIST Limerick Contest!


Dear Subscribers,

It's time to get your creative juices flowing! LINGUIST is proud to announce the
start of the 2005 Linguistics Limerick Contest. The fabulous prize for this
year's contest has been generously donated by John Benjamins Publishing Company.
The author of the winning limerick (selected by our highly qualified panel of
linguists) will receive a one-year subscription to any one of the 33 linguistic
or linguistic-related journals that John Benjamins has to offer.

All entries to the contest will appear in a special Limerick section of our Fun
Ddrive page for the benefit of the entire linguistics community. To enter this
highly prestigious contest, please email your submissions to
linguistlinguistlist.org with "Limerick Contest" as the subject.

Here's a past limerick from some of the LINGUIST advisors to help get you started:

We read The LINGUIST List every day,
A site where we all have our say:
Book notices, calls,
Discussion for all's
The reason we really should pay!

Finding money is hard and it's long
And so we resort to a song -
We hope that a verse
Will open your purse
To fund LINGUIST List - never wrong!

Entering the 2005 Linguistics Limerick Contest may win you a free journal
subscription AND will definitely earn you the admiration and recognition of your
fellow linguists. What are you waiting for?!

Eagerly awaiting your entries,
-The LINGUIST Crew

Subject: Como Donar ...


Este ano, Linguist List espera poder colectar $48,867. Este capital sera usado
para poder mantener a Linguist List funcionando correctamente, aportando ayuda a
los editores (la mayoria estudiantes) durante el corriente ano.

!Hay muchas formas en la que se puede donar a Linguist List!

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

Linguist List es parte de la Universidad de Eastern Michigan y puede recibir
donaciones por medio de la Fundacion de la Universidad de Eastern Michigan, la
cual es una organizacion sin fines de lucro registrada como 501(c). Nuestro
numero de impuestos federal es 38-6005986. Estas donaciones pueden ser usadas
como deducciones en sus impuestos federales y tambien en algunos impuestos
estatales (solo para gente que paga impuestos en US). Para mas informacion
visite la pagina de internet de IRS, o contacte a su compania de impuestos.

Muchas companias tambien ofrecen un programa de regalos, y ellas le dan un
regalo equivalente a la gente que dona a una organizacion sin fines de lucro
como Linguist List. Normalmente, esto significa que usted tiene que contactar a
la oficina de recursos humanos y pedir un formulario que la Fundacion de la
Universidad e Eastern Michigan llena y le reenvia a su empleador. Esto es en
general un proceso administrativo el cual duplica el valor de su donacion a
Linguist List, sin costarle a usted ningun gasto extra. Por favor, tome unos
minutos para ver si su compania opera con este tipo de programas.

!Muchas gracias por su apoyo a Linguist List!
