Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

LINGUIST List has so many services, and so much free information available to
you, that even the most seasoned LINGUIST user may not be aware of all the
resources we provide. Throughout the next few weeks, we will be sharing with
you our "Making the Most of LINGUIST" letter series. This series of messages
will identify the main types of resources on LINGUIST, and will explain how
they can best be utilized to meet your needs.

The series will mirror the typical development of a professional linguist,
beginning with resources for students, then for conducting research, followed
by help with professional development, institutions, conference organizers, and
employers, then finishing up with special interests.

For those of you who are new to the mesmerizing field of linguistics--or have a
passing interest in language--LINGUIST has an area specifically for you:

*Ask-a-Linguist: Ask-a-Linguistic contains answers to frequently asked
linguistic questions. This area of LINGUIST covers a lot of great, general
linguistic information:
