Dick Hudson is an Advisor on the LINGUIST List Advisory Board; please
take a moment to read his personal message.

Dear Linguists,

How many restaurants or email lists offer the services you get at the

a. Moderation - just think what you *don't* see, and thank the staff
for filtering it out - political tracts, flaming, etc.

b. Digestion - different packages to suit different appetites, and
every item carefully listed on the menu; deletion has never been so

c. Retention - in case you're that way inclined, relax. They do it for
you.  You  don't need to clog up your  system with old  messages when
they're all archived centrally.

d. Information - the server knows everything you want to know about

And when did you last go to a restaurant without paying for it?

Dear Linguists,

On LINGUIST, we like to thank the people who support us - and what
better way to show our deepest gratitude than to send you a free gift!

And this year is no exception. We have some great gifts for you to
choose from; if you would like to see some photos of our crew
modelling these highly fasionable items, visit:


This year, because we have a Food and Cooking theme for the fund
drive, we have published Volume 1 of The LINGUIST List Cookbook, and
we have also produced a matching apron.

The complete list of gifts available this year is:

The LINGUIST List Cookbook
The LINGUIST List Cook Apron
Cookbook and Apron Combo
Baby T-shirt
T-Shirt - available in S, M, L and X-L
Tote Bag

Please help us with our fund drive and make a donation, we will send
you one of these lovely gifts if you do.

And on a connected note, here's a copy of a letter we received from
one of our donors. Rebecca was one of a 'small group' who nagged us
about not having gifts in size small - her support certainly isn't
small and we are glad to offer a wider range of sizes. Thank you for
allowing us to print this Rebecca.


Dear Friends,

Enclosed is my check for $100 toward the maintenance of the List.

Please send me one of the "tote bags" Gosh, I don't like the name of
these things! Wonder how this entered the language? Where I come from,
we tote things, but we don't call what we do it with a "tote bag"!! Oh
well, whatever they are, they are handy, and the LL's one is very

Keep up the good work.

A long-time fan.

(Rebecca Larche Moreton)

P.S. I love my size "small" t-shirt from last year, and am very much
gratified to notice that y'all are now offering smalls to everybody -
don't let anybody say that one person's voice can't make an effect!


This year we need to raise $50,000 to keep LINGUIST alive. So far we
have raised $13,556.33 which is really good - but we still have a
long way to go. Please make a donation; every little helps.

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 EMU 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
