Subject: About the LINGUIST Notice Board

Dear Subscribers:

As most of you know, The LINGUIST List has established a 
Notice Board to help linguists make professional contacts 
and find practical information. This notice board is to 
be found on the Web, at the URL:

The Notice Board is not intended to take the place of the 
LINGUIST Queries issues (which treat academic linguistics) 
or Ask-A-LINGUIST (which handles general questions about 
language, usually from non-linguists). Rather it is designed 
to help LINGUIST subscribers find information about such 
things as housing in another city, conference transportation, 
or university contacts. 

If you need such information, we hope you will consider 
posting a notice to the NoticeBoard this week, since we 
are in the process of setting up software that should 
enhance its usefulness. 

Beginning next week, once every seven days, a single e-mail 
message will be sent to LINGUIST subscribers listing the 
subject-lines of the messages found on the Notice-Board, 
along with the URL's of those messages. 

Some of you may have inadvertently received copies of 
some of our test messages today (with non-working URL's). 
If so, we apologize! We hope the greater usefulness 
of the service will make up for this initial inconvenience.

All the best
