Welcome to FUNd Drive FUN Friday

***Total Raised So Far: $12,706.33***   ***Target: $50,000***

Sit back, relax, and start looking forward to the weekend. We know
you're diligent and hard working; we know you deserve a holiday; we
also know that you have done so much this week, you have earned a

And do we have some fun for you! For a start, Percival The LINGUIST
List Cat has been extending his world knowledge. Read all about his
travels in the next message.

To go with our Food and Cooking theme, we have some classic jokes and
puns for you, and we have also printed another recipe from The LINGUIST
List Cookbook. Check it out below.

But before you move on, let me give you some insider information about
some of the good things we have in stall for you:

**** The LINGUIST List Publisher Prize Draw ****

Yes that's right, we have some great things to give away once the fund
drive is over. We are just working out the fine details, but I know
that the following prizes will be up for grabs:

Cascadilla Press has most generously offered two prizes
1. WCCFL Proceedings 18-21 on CD-ROM - worth $80 - works on Mac or Win
2. Many Morphologies edited by Paul Boucher
Thank you Cascadilla! http://www.cascadilla.com

Elsevier Science are giving away a years subscription to the whole of
ScienceDirect - check out the site at http://www.sciencedirect.com
Thanks to the Elsevier crew!

MIT Press have offered subscriptions to two of there well respected
1. Linguistic Inquiry
2. Computational Linguistics
Thanks MIT!

We should be announcing the prize draw for real in the next few days,
together with all the fine details etc.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank another of
our supporting publishers, John Benjamins. Last week they told us that
if we could take the fund drive total over $10,000 by Saturday 15
March, they would give us a very generous $1,500. At the time we were
just over $5,000. Well, thanks to many wonderful people out there, we
broke through the barrier in record time and Benjamins of course have
made good on their pledge. Thank you to all the team there!

That pesky delinquent Percival, The LINGUIST List Cat, has sent us
another postcard from his travels. Percy is the brains behind
LINGUIST, and without him it is mayhem here! Help us get him back so
the List can return to normal.

Catalan - A Real Cat Land

Hola, ¿Què tal?

Percival here. I thought I'd keep you posted about my whereabouts; I'm
sure you're dying to know what I've been up to.

I'm here in Barcelona, enjoying the good food and the wonderful
architecture. After India I decided to head for Europe, so after some
serious talking and some cat-burglar like stealth, I landed in
València. Catalan truly is a land for cats - as I worked my way up the
coast of the Balearic I met nothing but the friendliest of felines who
rolled over backwards to show me the hospitality of a king.

The hike has left me rather exhausted, especially since last night
when I arrived here I immediatly made friends with a local bunch who
kept me out until the early hours on a howling spree. Did we rumble
down la Rambla or what! Anyway, earlier this afternoon I managed to
take in the sites at a more sedate pace, enjoying some of the famed
Gaudí artwork that makes this city so unique. And of course, befitting
a cat of my stature, I sweet-purred my way into the kitchens of
Palacio Güell and I intend to stay here for at least a night.

Well, have to go now. I hope everything is running smoothly on
LINGUIST without me; I'd like to tell you that I'll be back soon, but
I won't. Oh and by the way, you'll have to get up a lot earlier than
that if you think that cheapskate private detective you have on my
tail is gonna catch me!




Help us get Percival back - without him LINGUIST is just falling
apart. We have so much work for him to do! Make a donation now to the
'Get Percy Back Fund' at:

 Looks like the breast-stroke to me, sir.

Subject:  The LINGUIST List Cookbook - another recipe

Here's another recipe from our new cookbook. Remember, if you make a
donation to our fund drive, we will send you a Cookbook as a gift if
you like.

Southeast Asian Pork and Pumpkin by Ralph Eccles


-2 pork chops cut into 1. bite-size pieces (remove bone and excess fat)
-1 t dry mustard
-1 T peanut oil
-salt and fresh ground black pepper
-1/4 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
-1/4 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
-10 baby carrots quartered lengthwise
 (thus creating yellow, orange and red slices just over an inch long)
-1 celery stalk chopped in 1/4" pieces
-1 green onion sliced thinly
-1/4 cup sliced canned black olives
-1 T .Thai Kitchen. Premium Fish Sauce
-1/4 - 1/2 t "A Taste of Thai" garlic chili pepper sauce
-1 T .Mirin Sweetened Sake. mixed with 1 t freshly ground ginger
-2 t Yellow Thai curry paste
-1/2 cup pumpkin pie mix (canned)


1T marjoram ( 1/2 t if fresh) 2 t soy sauce 3/4 cup coconut milk
(Thai) fresh ground pepper Lightly salt the pieces of pork. Roll the
pieces of meat in the powdered dry mustard until well covered. Heat
oil over fairly high heat, but not enough to smoke. It is best to use
a wok and long chop sticks to saut the initial ingredients. Add the
meat to the hot oil and stir constantly. Once the meat starts to
brown, add the fresh vegetables and olives. Keep stirring for about a
minute. Grind plenty of pepper over the sizzling ingredients, then add
the fish sauce, chili pepper sauce, sake and ginger and stir for 15
.20 seconds, lower the heat, then cover and simmer for about a
minute. Uncover and quickly stir in the curry paste, pumpkin, marjoram
and soy sauce. Stir for about thirty seconds on medium heat, then add
the coconut milk and stir until smooth. Turn the heat back to low and
stir slowly for about a minute or two as the sauce thickens. Serve
immediately. Obviously good with rice.
