The LINGUIST Development Fund has reached $2058.00, thanks to the
generosity of the people listed below. So, once again, we want to
extend sincere thanks to those of you who have contributed.

They are tax deductible; and we will send you a written receipt upon

We're confident now that we'll be able to fund at least 1 fellowship--
2 if we wait and award them next year. So we hope we can make LINGUIST
more efficient for you, in return for your generosity.

We think Dick has a good point--so let us (modestly) report that
LINGUIST is now the largest academic net in the world, and the
5th largest of the over 2900 Listserv lists. At last count, we
had over 3100 subscribers.

So what DOES that say about linguistics?
