Dear Fellow Linguists, Colleagues and Subscribers,
We are wrapping up this week's publisher prize lottery. In case you missed the announcement for this and you still want a chance to win one of the prizes from this first bundle(read the list of prizes here: https://linguistlist.org/issues/27/27-1535.html ), donate before 5 PM EST tonight to enter your name into the drawing.
We are also introducing our next publisher prize bundle, again generously donated by our Supporting Publishers:
Bloomsbury Publishing has donated The Bloomsbury Companion To Second Language Acquisition edited by Ernesto Macaro(http://goo.gl/750tBD), an excellent resource if your research interests are in applied linguistics or language acquisition.
Brill is donating FIVE copies of Eight Decades of General Linguistics, The History of CIPL and Its Role in the History of Linguistics edited by Ferenc Kiefer and Piet van Sterkenburg(http://goo.gl/2j6LBg), which includes influential articles by linguistic giants in the field who have contributed greatly to the discipline over the years.
Cambridge University Press is donating TWO prizes this week. Firstly, they are giving away TWO one-year online subscriptions to their journal Language and Cognition (http://goo.gl/WLLnas), which is perfect if your interests lie in the cognitive sciences, in addition to linguistics. Secondly, they are also donating The Cambridge Handbook of Learner Corpus Research (http://goo.gl/9OdA7P) edited by Sylviane Granger, Gaëtanelle Gilquin, and Fanny Meunier, for the corpus linguists among you!
We have TWO prizes from De Gruyter as well. First, De Gruyter is donating Third Person Reference in Late Latin by Bordal Hertzenberg and Mari Johanne(http://goo.gl/Qa1Gks), a great resource for the historical linguists studying the Romance languages. Second, they are also giving away ONE one-year subscription to their journal Linguistics Vanguard (http://goo.gl/hn4yZn), their new multidiscipinary journal that covers many subfields of linguistics and integrates interactive content.
From Elsevier, just as last week, we are giving away ONE personal one-year electronic subscription to an Elsevier linguistics journal of the winner’s choice (complete list of their linguistic journals here: https://goo.gl/NaswSa). That's right, we are giving away another subscription to you, so if you missed this one last week, you have another chance to win one!
To win any of these fantastic prizes from this coming week's prize bundle, you can donate to win, until Friday April 15th, at 5 PM EST. For every $10 you donate, your name will be entered into the lottery to win. So if you donate $30, your name goes into the drawing three times. Donate by the link below:
And as always, if you cannot donate monetarily, you can help us out in other ways, such as liking, sharing, and retweeting our Fund Drive posts on social media. If you like the LINGUIST List and have benefited from our free service, tell your friends about the LINGUIST List and our Fund Drive. Every little bit of support is appreciated!
There will be many more great prizes from our supporting publishers in the coming month, so stay tuned to our social media pages to hear about more prizes that you can win. Thanks and good luck!
Linguistically yours, The LINGUIST List Crew
This year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $79,000. This money will go to help keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
For all information on donating, including information on how to donate by check, money order, PayPal or wire transfer, please visit: http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/donate/
The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Indiana University and as such can receive donations through the eLinguistics Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 45-4211155. These donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the eLinguistics Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
