Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

We must say we're blown away by sociolinguists' response to Roger
Shuy's challenge (http://linguistlist.org/issues/23/23-1236.html).
Since posting the issue less than 24 hours ago, sociolinguistics'
supporters have donated over $1300! This is, honestly, incredible.
Sociolinguistics is now only $433 behind syntax in the Battle of the
Fields, and there are still 26 hours left in the challenge-- can
sociolinguistics overtake syntax today? Based on yesterday's
showing, we have a sneaking suspicion that the answer is yes.

Sociolinguists, you're almost there-- keep those donations coming to
pull off this incredible coup!

Conversely, syntacticians, you may want to mount a counter-challenge
if you intend to keep your throne...

Donate now to push your field to the top:


Good luck,
The LINGUIST List Crew
