Dear Subscribers and Readers,

This is our fifth appeal to all of you: please continue helping us update
the linguistics articles in Wikipedia, "the encyclopedia that anyone can
edit!" It was your collective enthusiasm last spring that launched us on
the path to soliciting your help in improving existing linguistics articles
in Wikipedia. Such efforts contribute substantively to our field, and help
make it as coherent as possible to non-specialists. In past appeals to you,
we identified a few "linguistic stub" articles by subfield, urging you to
help complete them, add a few good references, or do some fine-tune
editing. It has been suggested that some articles could even be merged with
other related articles.

Since our last appeal, we have heard from a few of our readers and we would
like to thank them very much for their responses:

--Michael Newman of Queens College, New York, has updated the article on
New York dialects of English;
-- Lukasz Mokrzycki of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland,
volunteered to update phonetics and phonology stubs in English Wikipedia;
--Milos Rancic, founder of the Serbian language Wikipedia, is organizing a
group of students to work on sociolinguistics articles in that language
version of Wikipedia.

Today, we want to appeal more broadly to our readers by specifically
listing some 30 phonetics and phonology stub articles, appended below, that
really need attention. We hope that you or your students might wish to edit
some of these - as a class project? - and help reduce the backlog of articles
identified as "stubs."

In future appeals, we will also be targeting morphology, syntax, semantics,
historical linguistics, and pragmatics. You are all welcome to track the
overall progress of our collective efforts at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Linguistlist

Today, we also call your attention to our standing offer: if you don't wish
to edit directly in Wikipedia yourself, then just send your suggestions,
edits, or articles to us here at LINGUIST, and we will upload them for you!

As always, the LINGUIST List is grateful for your participation in this
effort, and look forward to hearing from you. Please contact the Wikipedia
Update team at: roxanalinguistlist.org or hannahlinguistlist.org or
luizalinguistlist.org
Thank you.
