Subject: Fund Drive

Dear LINGUIST Subscribers,

It's late in the giving season, but here we are with another appeal.
If you've looked at the new piggy illustration on our homepage,
no doubt you've ascertained that we still have some territory
to cover in our fund drive.

So far, the generous donations of our subscribers have funded the
editing services of Scott, Marty, and Anita for '98-99. The editing
services of Brett have also been partilly funded. But the amount
donated so far ($12,050) has still fallen short of what we need to
fund the essential programming services of Chris and Maria. (Our goal
is $16,000.) 

The LINGUIST site has grown to the point that maintenance is becoming
an issue for us. In addition to student editors, we need students who
can maintain the software and also adapt and refine it as new needs
arise. If we cannot fund Chris and/or Maria we may need to slow web
updates as well as curtail planned improvements--e.g., the expansion
of our search capabilities and the completion of the Linguistic
Programs Directory and the Directory of Linguists.

If we don't reach our goal, one solution proposed by an interested
party is to initiate commercial sponsorship of our web pages. This could
mean, for example, that commercial messages similar to those that
pepper America Online, would begin appearing on LINGUIST. We are
interested in knowing how you, our subscribers, feel about this
prospect.

But, of our 10,000 subscribers, only 158 have so far made a 1998
contribution. If subscribers who have not yet dug into their pockets
will now do so, then paid commercial support will become unnecessary.

Make a donation today by clicking below piggy's illustration on LINGUIST's
homepage. Or go directly to: 
	http://linguistlist.org/donation.html
where you can donate by credit card.

Or mail a check to:

	The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
	c/o Helen Aristar Dry
	Dept. of English
	Eastern Michigan University
	Ypsilanti, MI 48103
	
Once again, our heartiest thanks to the persons and institutions who 
have already contributed to the fund. Their names are listed below.
