Message 2: student discount on NLLT

From: Benjamin T Bruening <muawiyaMIT.EDU>
Subject: student discount on NLLT
	MIT Working Papers in Linguistics (MITWPL) is pleased to
announce that it will once again be able to offer students a hefty
discount on subscriptions to _Natural Language and Linguistic Theory_.
By arrangement with Kluwer Publishers, students can subscribe to NLLT
for a mere $44, a savings of over $20!

	According to the arrangement with Kluwer, students may receive the
discounted rate of $44 per volume by ordering NLLT through MITWPL. Students
must declare that the subscription is for their own private use, that it will
not replace any existing institutional subscription, and that it will not be
put at the disposal of any library.

	Please make cheques or money orders payable to MITWPL, not to
Kluwer or NLLT (in US funds, drawn on a US bank). Enquiries should
also be addressed to MITWPL ( or the mailing address
below). Because the orders must go through MITWPL, delivery may be
slower than normal. Please include the following information with
your order:

Mailing address
E-mail address
Expected date of graduation
Proof of student status (eg, photocopy of student ID)
Signature on the following disclaimer:
	I understand that this order is only for my own private use
