Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers, Supporters, and Friends,

As of Thursday morning at 10:00 am (EST), Fund Drive has made $23,725.91. While we are so grateful for all of the support we have received thus far, it is time to get serious. We are over $50,000 away from meeting our goal. If we don’t meet our goal, major changes will have to be made to the LINGUIST List that you know and love.
