As you all know, economic times have not been good, and financial support
from our school has been cut back in the past year. In an attempt to recoup
our losses, we have decided to experiment with a LINGUIST List Amazon
Store or "astore" (http://linguistlist.org/store). An astore can be customized,
and we've specialized ours to feature linguistic books announced on
LINGUIST List. But you can also buy anything else you need there, from
electronics like audio recorders and hard drives to shoes and movie
downloads. It's a convenient way for users to support the LINGUIST List just
by doing their normal Amazon shopping.
For every purchase made through the LINGUIST List Amazon Store,
LINGUIST List receives a small percentage of the sales-price. The more
items purchased, the larger the percentage. For example, if more than 7
items are purchased from the LINGUIST List Amazon Store in one month,
LINGUIST List will receive 6% of the revenue from each sale. These funds go
straight to supporting the graduate students who maintain the LINGUIST List
website and mailing list.
What we like best about this store is that there is absolutely no cost to you.
When you buy products through the LINGUIST List Amazon Store, you don't
pay a penny more than you otherwise would on Amazon. You pay exactly the
same price as usual, and LINGUIST List benefits. Everyone wins!
Remember that while we've focused on putting together a broad, well-
organized inventory of linguistics-related books, you can buy any Amazon
product through the LINGUIST List Store. Simply go the LINGUIST List
Amazon Store, select the product category in the top left corner of the astore
page, and search for the product. Anything at all that you find and buy
through the LINGUIST List Store will generate revenue for LINGUIST List,
whether it's a linguistics book or a washing machine!
To cut down on your shipping costs, we have opened two stores, one in the
USA at (http://astore.amazon.com/linguistlist-20), and one in Europe, at
(http://astore.amazon.co.uk/linguistlist-21). We plan to create stores in other
countries where Amazon has a presence. Use the one nearest to you, and
Thank you for supporting LINGUIST List! If you have any questions or
comments about the Amazon Store, don't hesitate to send them to us.

While the LINGUIST List makes every effort to ensure the linguistic relevance of sites listed
on its pages, it cannot vouch for their contents.
