Dear Subscribers,

I came to The LINGUIST List as a bright-eyed classicist straight out of
undergrad. With an arsenal of Latin conjugations and Greek declensions and
a fascination for language, I aimed to infiltrate the world of linguistics
in graduate school. Well, my fascination and enthusiasm were certainly
laudable, but to think that I was prepared to tackle the intricacies of
X-bar and lambda calculus armed with aorist tense paradigms was laughable.

But, luckily, I have The LINGUIST List, an excellent online resource at my
fingertips to help out whenever I have questions that need answering. And
so do you! Please donate today to keep the site and listserv alive:

As a student worker at The LINGUIST List, I get daily hands-on experience
with the world of linguistics, creating tools and providing a service for
people like you. Among other opportunities, I help edit submissions to the
LINGUIST List Notice Board, which is designed to help you find resources
for personal linguistic research. You can check out or submit to our
Notice Board by visiting:

http://linguistlist.org/people/notice/

The LINGUIST List has provided me with the resources I need to not just
study in linguistics but to thrive in it. And these resources aren't just
available to me, but to all of you as well! So please help show your
support for a group that is dedicated to supporting the pool of linguistic
knowledge - even those who have just waded in - by donating today:

Thanks!
Erica Wicks
