Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

At the beginning of Week Two, we've raised over $18,000! Thank you to all of our donors;
you're our heroes.

Of particular note today are the developments in the Subfield Challenge, which has so far
been full of surprises. The lead is still held by Syntax, with Sociolinguistics and
Phonetics locked in a constant battle for second place-- every time we check the
leaderboards, the ranking is different! Computational Linguistics, Language Acquisition,
and Semantics are fast rising behind Phonetics and Sociolinguistics, with 19 other
subfields making gallant stands as well.

We can't predict who will come out on top of the Battle of the Fields, but your donations
can shape the future-- both the future of the Battle of the Fields (support your subfield!)
and the future of LINGUIST List. Donate today, and ensure that LINGUIST will be part of
the future of the discipline:


Best wishes,
The LINGUIST List Crew
