Dear Fellow Linguists,

We are on our way to hitting the $25,000 mark soon, but these past few days have been pretty slow for Fund Drive 2016. Will you help us reach that number today by donating? We NEED to reach our goal, and we all hope to do that soon! As of 1:30 pm (EST), we are only at $22,753.40. If you’d like LINGUIST List to continue operating free of charge to our subscribers, the Choice is YOURS!


As a reminder, we have several donation benefits you can enjoy no matter how much you donate. Along with supporting LINGUIST, you can use your donation to help your university, business, subfield, country, or region in our challenges!

In our Subfield Challenge, computational linguistics continues to dominate with donations totaling over $3,369. Syntax, the strong leader for most of the fund drive, has fallen a little behind, but can easily catch up! We challenge you syntacticians to take the lead back! We would also like to congratulate historical linguistics for hitting the $1,000 mark! We now have EIGHT subfields that have hit the mark! Psycholinguistics, you're next!

Please visit http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/subfield/ for a full list!

In our University Challenge, Indiana University Bloomington and the University of Washington are in a tight battle! Washington holds the lead, at the moment, but that could change with a single donation! Or, will it be YOUR university?! We currently have representation from over 100 different universities around the world, from the USA, to South Africa, to Germany! We are grateful to have hit that number, but we know we have thousands and thousands of subscribers from all over the world—it’s your turn to step up!

So far this week, we've received donations from Universität zu Köln, University of Amsterdam, University of Toronto, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Anglia Ruskin University, Qatar University, and Western Sydney University!

Please visit http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/university/ for a full list!

Check out the results of our Business Challenge. In a tie is:

- Kunnskapsforlaget
- Oxford University Press

We look forward to this list of businesses growing and hopefully some stiff competition!

To make a donation and help your subfield, university, business, region, or country win, please visit http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/donate/.

Thank you all for your support!
