Subject:  A message from Chilin Shih

Hi, Dear LINGUIST subscribers,

We have been benefited for years reading and posting messages on
LINGUIST, debating, learning, and of course, find out about jobs. All
of these from the comfort of our own desks.

This is the time to take a moment to reflect on how much it costs to
run the LINGUIST list: student editors, web page improvement, server,
etc.  This is the time to support LINGUIST with donations.

We donate to LINGUIST because:

  LINGUIST is a very important linguistic community.  We can't live
  without it.

  We know that our donation is supporting a worthy cause, one that
  directly relates to our academic interest.

  We know where our money is going.

Act now.  Support LINGUIST with a donation.

Chilin Shih

Language Modeling Research Department

Murray Hill, NJ 07974, USA


Chilin Shih is a member of the LINGUIST List advisory board.  We thank
her, and everyone on the board, for taking time to offer their advice
to us.  We also thank everyone who interacts with LINGUIST, by sending
in their dissertation abstracts, replying to queries, participating in
discussions, and so on.  We hope we show our appreciation through our
commitment to continually refine, expand and improve LINGUIST, to ever
better serve our discipline.

As you've just read, however, we cannot run LINGUIST without your
financial support.  Running a web-based organisation like LINGUIST is
very expensive; the cost of software licences, computers, even basic
office supplies have to be managed and budgeted.  But the most
significant running costs are the stipends for the student editors.
These stipends are by no means enormous (the international members of
our crew, for example, have to show an additional source of income
before the US government will issue them visas), but the size of our
operation now requires twelve editors, and the stipends add up.

While we are not a profit-making organisation (and thus qualifying as
a 501(c) institution to receive tax-free contributions), we do not
receive any government money for our operational running costs.
Therefore, we rely on you for your support, so that we can continue
posting issues and maintaining our website.  Some people, companies
and institutions have already donated, and they are listed at the
bottom of this issue.  Together, they have donated $31,557 and we are
truly grateful to them.

This still leaves us with around $16,500 to go, however.  So if you
have not donated yet, please go to http://linguistlist.org/donate.html
to send us your pledge.  From there you have the choice of donating
straight away by credit card using our secure form, or you can send us
a cheque later.  If you do send a cheque, please make it payable in US
dollars; we get charged about $50 a time to convert currency (no such
problems with a credit card).

Alternatively, you can hit "Reply" to this message and send us your
pledge right now by email, prior to sending your cheque.  Then we will
be able to list you immediately as one of our donors; and we may be
able to reach our goal (and halt these Fund Drive messages) a bit
earlier.  The address to send cheques is as follows:

The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
c/o Helen Aristar-Dry
Dept. of English
Eastern Michigan University
Ypsilanti, MI
USA 48197

As a 501(c)3 organization, LINGUIST qualifies for corporate
donation-matching programs; and, of course, your donation is tax

Don't forget that in return for a donation of $25 or more, we would
like to send you a gift.  We have short-sleeved T-shirts, long-sleeved
T-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, and even baby T-shirts.  Do check
them out at http://linguistlist.org/premiums.html.  Remember to let us
know in your pledge which you would like, and please include your
mailing address.

We at LINGUIST really do appreciate your support.  We could not
continue without you.

With our sincere thanks,


Anthony, Helen, Andrew, Karen, Naomi, Heather, James, Michael,
Zhen-Wei, Richard, Karolina, Dina, Renee, Steve, Marie, Gayathri,
