It’s that time of  the year again: the LINGUIST List’s annual fund
drive is under way, for the month of March; the drive is about halfway
(about $36,000) to its goal of $65,000 (the money goes to support the
student staff). From the list’s site (


The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language
and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics
with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world.


LINGUIST maintains a website with thousands of pages and runs a
mailing list with tens of thousands of subscribers worldwide. LINGUIST
also hosts searchable archives of over 100 other linguistic mailing
lists and runs research projects to develop tools for the field.

The LINGUIST mailing list provides a space for open discussion,
reviews of publications, job listings, information on conferences, and
much more. LINGUIST also runs an Ask A Linguist service, where people
can get answers to questions about language and linguistics.

The list is an incredible resource for linguistics, deserving of your
support. Small donations are welcome, by the way.

(Information for donors is on the site, along with special features
like a “linguist of  the day” writing about how they got into the
field. This year’s writers are Claire Bowern, Dafydd Gibbon, C. T.
James Huang, Pius ten Hacken, Anna Wierzbicka, and Anthony Woodbury.)
