We are also introducing our next publisher prize bundle for Week 5 of our Fund Drive, again generously donated by our Supporting Publishers:

Brill is donating TWO copies of I am a Linguist by R.M.W Dixon (http://goo.gl/nJFXQb), part autobiography, part examination of history of the linguistics field, if you are interested in the history of linguistics and the linguists who helped build it, this may be the book for you.
