Dear LINGUIST subscribers,

LINGUIST has good news this fall! We have moved one of our main sites
from Texas A&M to Wayne State University. That means LINGUIST is now a
joint operation between Eastern Michigan University and Wayne State
University (which is offering generous backing). We would like to
give special thanks to those prominent linguists who wrote letters to
WSU expressing support for LINGUIST's role in the academic community,
thus helping make the move happen.

To signal our move to WSU, our pages now have a new look which you
have no doubt already noticed. The new pages were designed by Elaine
Halleck, one of our outgoing editors, who is leaving us to teach
graphic design.

We also happily report that our fund drive was successful, thanks to
the many donors whose names are listed at the end of this
message. Because of your support, we can welcome the following new
graduate student editors. We have asked each to write a paragraph of
self-introduction, which we append below:

Scott Fults, Eastern Michigan University

	I grew up in the Detroit area and graduated from 
	the University of Michigan with a B.A. in English. 
	Since then, I've been everything from a pipeliner to 
	a car wash attendant to a salesman of physics toys to
	teachers. After reading several linguistics texts and 
	taking a few classes at Eastern, I decided to try my 
	luck with grad school. I love syntax and semantics, 
	especially the scientific/ cognitive aspect of it all. 
	My hobbies include cooking and playing guitar (I'm just 
	beginning!) and I also volunteer tutor for a local literacy 
	program.

Jody Huellmantel, Wayne State University 

	I am currently a graduate student in the linguistics 
	program at Wayne State university. I've spent the last 
	five years at the center for Creative Studies, studying 
	Fine Arts in Detroit, Michigan. My focus has been on 
	sculpture and photography. I am now concentrating my 
	efforts on linguistics, and on the analysis of individual 
	languages. 

Karen Milligan, Wayne State University

	Trained as a dancer and a musician, I have been performing 
	or teaching for most of my life. My undergraduate degree 
	is in theater and music, and for a short time, a long time 
	ago, I danced professionally. I always knew I would teach 
	ballet, and opened my own school twenty years ago. In 1990 
	I went to the former Soviet Union as a guest of their Ministry 
	of Culture to study their legendary teaching methods (a *very 	
	enlightening* experience!). Last year, feeling burned out and 
	needing a change, I announced plans to retire from teaching 
	and began pursuit of a degree in my other passion -- linguistics. 
	I didn't retire, but now my ballet students bring me their 
	questions about language!


We are also very pleased to announce that Andrew Carnie will be
serving this year in a new role as Moderator. Andrew has done such an
outstanding job as Review Editor that we wanted him to take an even
larger part in running the list. Fortunately, we were able to
convince him; and he will be working on LINGUIST from the U. of
Arizona.

The LINGUIST crew is looking forward to a bright new academic year. We
value your continued participation in this forum, as we strive to
increase its value to you all.

Warm Regards,

The LINGUIST Crew
