Dear subscribers,

I am proud to be in my 3rd year as a graduate student editor
at The LINGUIST List. In 2006, I decided to return to life
as a full time student of linguistics, and LINGUIST was here
to support me in my endeavor. Simply being in the LINGUIST
office gave me access to meet other students in the field,
and working on LINGUIST's different projects allowed me to
meet linguistics faculty from around the world.

Every day, I post book announcements and work with publishers
to bring subscribers the latest news about linguistics
publications. This year I've also helped out on the LL-Map
Project, which is a new tool for looking at linguistic maps.
Being part of LINGUIST is a wonderful supplement to my graduate
education, and I am honored that subscribers like you are
willing to support me in this work. It is good to know that
you find our services useful! Please continue to support
LINGUIST by making a donation at


All the best,
Hannah Morales

Dear Subscribers,

The Publications Area of LINGUIST remains an active portion of
our listserv and website that brings you updates on the newest
publications in linguistics. We post announcements about
linguistics books, journal issues (tables of contents), journal
calls for papers, and dissertations. We also keep a searchable
database of journals, academic papers and publishers that are
relevant to linguists. Additionally, we work closely with the
Reviews Team, which posts subscriber reviews of books that have
been announced on LINGUIST. In 2008 we sent you emails about:

*767 books
*231 book reviews
*306 journal tables of contents
*102 journal calls for papers
*184 dissertations

This means that our database now allows you to search and
browse through a total of about 7450 books, 2200 book reviews,
1680 dissertation abstracts, and 2520 academic paper abstracts.
Each entry is classified to make it searchable by language and
linguistic subfield. Also, if you are looking for information
about linguistics journals or publishers that publish linguistics
titles, our site also contains entries for approximately 580
journals and 550 publishers. To browse or search through any of
these areas, visit the Publications Index at:


In 2009, we continue to bring you special features such as
Cambridge Extra, which features access to selected journal
articles as well as fun competitions and special offers:


We also offer the the Wiley-Blackwell Language & Linguistics
Compass Discussion Forum, which allows you to read the full text
of selected articles and post comments about them directly to
a discussion board:


With so many features available, it's no wonder that the
Publications pages are a popular area of our site. Be sure to use
them for finding linguistics publications on the particular
language or linguistic subfield of your interest. And please
remember that your donation enables us to keep this resource up
and running! Help us reach our fund drive goal by making a
donation at http://linguistlist.org/donation/index.html.

The Pubs Team

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help

2009 LINGUIST List Restaurant and join us for a delightful treat!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to:

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

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!
