Dear Fellow Linguists, Colleagues and Subscribers,
There are still a couple hours left to donate if you want to enter in this week's Fund Drive publisher prize lottery (read the list of prizes here: https://linguistlist.org/issues/27/27-1660.html), so if you would like to qualify for any of those prizes, donate before 5 PM EST tonight to enter your name into the drawing.
We are also introducing our next publisher prize bundle for Week 4 of our Fund Drive, again generously donated by our Supporting Publishers:
Bloomsbury Publishing is donating the book Corpus Applications in Applied Linguistics edited by Ken Hyland, Chau Meng Huat, and Michael Handford (http://goo.gl/SQEuOM). This is the ideal book for those of you interested in how to incorporate corpus data into your research!
Brill is donating TWO one-year subscriptions to the journal International Review of Pragmatics (http://goo.gl/dVf90r). This is not only interesting and peer-reviewed articles about pragmatics, but also on discourse, semiotics and many more topics!
Cambridge University Press is donating TWO prizes this week. Firstly, they are giving away FOUR copies of Chomsky by Neil Smith and Nicholas Allott (http://goo.gl/er8K1Y), a biographic exploration of Chomsky's influence on the fields of linguistics and philosophy, as well as his political activism; if you are interested in the history of our field, this is the perfect book for you!
Secondly, they are also donating The Cambridge Handbook of Bilingual Processing (http://goo.gl/pckZCS) edited by John W. Schwieter, which explores the current topics in the fields of language acquisition, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics.
De Gruyter is one one-year online-subscription for Journal of Historical Sociolinguistics (http://goo.gl/J3KerD), another new journal of theirs. It's just what it says on the cover: if you would like access to peer-reviewed research on the interaction of language and society over history, donate to get access for a year!
From Elsevier, just as last week, we are giving away another 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!
John Benjamins is donating another 1 journal subscription of the winner’s choice from any of their 70+ journals. You can see the full listing of their journals here: http://goo.gl/lvCacl. Whatever your chosen discipline, John Benjamins has a journal for you.
To win any of these fantastic prizes from this coming week’s prize bundle, you can donate to enter your name into the drawing, until Friday April 22th, at 5 PM EST. For every $10 you donate, your name will be entered into the lottery to win. So if you donate $50, 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.
