Dear Subscribers,

We would like to thank the persons and institutions listed below for
their generous contributions to the LINGUIST List. 

As you know, we have been extremely fortunate this year in attracting
the support of the Linguistic Data Consortium, which will shortly
begin to host our listserv operations, and in winning a grant from the
National Science Foundation to support software development for our
web site. Because of this, we've been able to make many improvements
in our website and in LINGUIST operations, e.g., LingLite, web search
of back issues, dissertation abstract collection, the online
conference, address search, topics pages, and Ask-A-Linguist. And
you'll see more improvements this summer, as a number of longterm
software projects come to completion.

But we need to remind you that the day to day operations of LINGUIST
are still supported almost entirely by subscriber donations: it is
contributions to the LINGUIST Development Fund that pay our student
editors. And as LINGUIST grows it becomes ever more important that we
attract and keep good editors. As many of you know from personal
experience, the more useful the website, the more maintenance it
requires. 

We've been extremely fortunate for the past 3 years to have student
editors with the skills and interest to develop LINGUIST, not simply
keep it going. We are--sadly--losing all 3 of our outstanding student
editors this summer. However, we do have a promising crew ready to
take over in the fall. And, thanks to your generosity, this year for
the first time we should be able to pay them the standard
rate for graduate assistants at our universities. This is an
important change for us, and one we want to perpetuate. So, at the
same time as we extend our heartiest thanks to the contributors listed
below, we ask that you continue to donate to the LINGUIST Editorial
Support Fund. Please send your contributions to:

LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund

The Eastern Michigan University Development Office is now helping with
the administration of the LINGUIST Fund; so those of you who
contribute from now on will receive a written receipt from the EMU
Foundation, as well as an email response from LINGUIST. You will also 
be able to contribute by credit card: to do this, you should send your
credit card number, the expiration date, and the amount you wish to 
contribute to the address above. 

Again, we want to emphasize that LINGUIST exists only through the
support of subscribers. We therefore owe a great deal to the
persons listed below.
