Dear Subscribers:

It's the holiday season here in the USA, so we want to extend good wishes
for the festive season and also to let you know that LINGUIST will be "on
vacation" from December 20 (midnight) to January 5, 1995.

We're taking a break this year because we have been plagued with
technical problems all semester: first our mailer started wildly
duplicating and triplicating messages; then we began having problems (still
unsolved) telnetting from EMU to Texas A&M; and now we are being moved
to a new machine at Texas A&M. (Come to think of it--why did we say this
was going to be a "holiday"??) We will be spending the break doing
what we can to ensure that 1995 is less technically "interesting".

We want to thank all of you who have been patient with late postings,
duplicate postings, and lost messages from September to December.
And we wish to extend hearty thanks to our Assistant Editors,
Ron Reck, Ljuba Veselinova, Liz Bodenmiller, and Ann Dizdar,
who have manned the front lines in our battle with technology:
it is because of their excellent work that LINGUIST was able to
continue all semester despite the revolt of the machines.

Some of you may be interested to know that LINGUIST now has 5700
subscribers, who have posted this year's 1500 messages from approximately
60 different countries.

May all 5700 of you have a prosperous and happy new year!

Helen & Anthony
