Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

The votes are in--and the winning Limerick has been chosen!

"There once was a linguist that's Sweet,
Who could place London speech within feet.
This philologist told
Of Germanic of old,
But left us before he could tweet."

We thank our winner Brenda Boerger, and all of those who wrote
and voted on Limericks! Just in case you missed this incredible
competition, check out the Limerick leaderboard:


If you liked this competition and haven't yet donated,
please help us finish our Fund Drive today!


Yes, voting has ended, but hopefully your laughs and hee-haws
haven't! You can still read all of the Limericks in
our Limerick Museum:


And finally, we'll leave you with this!

There once was a LINGUIST Fund Drive
to help LINGUIST continue to thrive
We've grown trepidatious
But hope you'll be gracious
And can pledge to help us survive!


Thank you!
-The LINGUIST List Crew
