Message 1: Announcing: Linguist Lite (LINGLITE)

Subject: Announcing: Linguist Lite (LINGLITE)

Dear Subscribers,

Our software developer, John Remmers, has set up a system which, we
think, will help those of you who feel overfed on a diet of ordinary
LINGUIST: an email list called Linguist Lite, or LINGLITE. This list
is also designed to help those who read LINGUIST at our Web site.

The LINGLITE list will send you, once a day, a posting such as the one
appended to this message. It gives the subject lines of issues and of
messages posted that day, with the URL's for viewing these on the Web.
For those of you with an intelligent Mail program, such as Netscape
Mail, these URL's will be clickable, i.e., they will be live links.

In this way, you can be notified daily of what LINGUIST posts but not
be forced to read or delete any issues. LINGLITE is, therefore,
better than the old Digest function (which sends you all the issues in
a chunk) and the old Index function (which gives you only issue
subject lines, not message subjects or URL's).

So take a look at the sample posting below and see if you would like
to receive it in your email, rather than complete LINGUIST issues. If
so, you should subscribe by sending the 2-line message

sub linglite firstname lastname
set linguist nomail


Please note
	1) our listserv address has changed
	2) your message should contain ONLY the 2-lines above--no signature
		files, for example.
	3) "firstname" refers to YOUR firstname (we already have 2 subscribers
		called Firstname Lastname. Truly.)

As always, we'd be interested in your comments and suggestions.

And now for the unveiling of LINGLITE. Please imagine a roll of
drums here (we can't handle sound files yet) and read on:
