Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
We know you probably woke up today just like any other Monday, with emails to answer, perhaps rushing to class or to your office to take care of whatever has piled up over the weekend.
But thankfully, we're here to brighten your day! How can we do that, you ask? Well, Wiley-Blackwell has generously donated the Blackwell Companion to Phonology, edited by Marc van Oostendorp, Colin Ewen, Beth Hume, and Keren Rice. (http://www.companiontophonology.com/public/)
And when we say big, we mean HUGE! Bringing together no less than 124 new contributions from leading international scholars in the field, this five volume set is just what the Phonologist ordered for all your phonology needs!
Volume I: General Issues and Segmental Phonology Volume II: Suprasegmental and Prosodic Phonology Volume III: Phonological Processes Volume IV: Phonological Interfaces Volume V: Phonology Across Languages
"Five volumes!--that's impossible," you might say. But no! We're not pulling the wool over your eyes; it's NOT an early April Fools' joke. In fact, the joke's on us. We here at LINGUIST wish we could take this home!
Instead, since we appreciate YOU--our great subscribers-- so much, we're giving away this prize to one lucky donor in the next 36 hours. So go ahead, donate by Tuesday, March 27 at 11:59 PM (EST) to win a veritable archive of phonological knowledge for your home or office library!

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.
