Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Barely two minutes have passed since posting this week's round of
limericks, and you're already voting for your favorites. We
marvel at and applaud your promptness. For those of you who
haven't seen them yet, the limericks of Round 2 have been
unveiled! Our exceptionally clever subscribers contributed in
droves this week; we're excited to announce that we have no less
than THIRTEEN superb limericks for you to vote on this week.

Have a look, and vote for your favorite:


Round 1 was a tight competition, with three excellent limericks
vying for victory. Only one could emerge the winner: here it is,
your very first Grand 2012 Limerick Competition victor!

WINNER! Graham Shorrocks, Memorial University of Newfoundland

There is a young Linguist List Crew,
That's asking for dollars anew;
So send your donation
Without hesitation,
Be it many dollars or few.

Congratulations to Graham Shorrocks, poet laureate of the week!
This limerick will move on to the Final Round, and compete
against subsequent weeks' winning limericks. Vote for the winner
of Round 2 today:


One last thing: What would a Fund Drive message be without a plea
for donations? Please chip in whatever you can to support


Happy reading,
The LINGUIST List Crew
