Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
Just a friendly reminder that everyone who donates this weekend will be eligible to win one of 25 Speculative Grammarian magnets, generously donated by Trey Jones, virtuoso of satirical linguistics. If you haven't yet read his superb guest chapter of the LingQuest saga, the weekend is a great time to catch up:
Donate this weekend for your chance to win your choice of SpecGram magnet! Weekend donations are usually slower than during the week, so the odds of winning are much higher-- in fact, you're more likely to win than not to win. Take a look at the magnet options at SpecGram and pick your favorite:
Then donate this weekend (before Sunday, 11:59 pm EST) for your statistically excellent chance to win!
For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
