Subject:  Ask-A-Linguist - Another Super-Useful Service from LINGUIST

Dear Subscribers,

Thank you so much for your support of the LINGUIST List!

One of my responsibilities at LINGUIST is the editing of
Ask-a-Linguist.  Ask-a-Linguist is a non-academic, family-friendly
linguistic service that makes it possible for everyone from
professional linguists to 'ordinary people' with questions of a
linguistic nature to have their questions seriously considered.  We
have a distinguished panel of over 50 professional linguists who daily
address questions from all linguistic disciplines.  (They deserve a
HUGE round of applause!)  We are currently making some changes to
Ask-a-Linguist to make it even more user-friendly, enjoyable, and

On a personal note, I am a student at Wayne State University.  I am
working on an MA in linguistics (Language Variation and Change).  I
have been working with LINGUIST for a year and a half, and will
forever be indebted for the experience I have gained, the support I
have received, and the people I have had the opportunity to meet and
with whom I have become friends.  Aside from my studies and my work
with LINGUIST, I am the proud mother of the oldest Baby Linguist
T-Shirt model, wife to a supremely supportive husband, and a lover of
world travel and different cultures.

Once again, thank you so much for supporting the LINGUIST List and its

This year we need to raise $50,000 to keep LINGUIST alive. So far we
have raised $16,278.33. Make a donation and you are automatically
entered into the Publisher Prize Draw.

Dear Subscribers,

  Thank you so much for your support!  As I am sure you have been
reading throughout the fund drive, each of your dollars goes to
support graduate students as well as the up-keep and development of
the website.  I don't know about you, but when I am giving money to
people, I like to know where my money is going.  Therefore, since I am
one of the recipients of your support, I want to tell you a little bit
about myself.
  I have been working with LINGUIST for a year and a half, and during
that time my duties have primarily been posting Calls, Conferences,
and managing Ask-a-Linguist; however, I am currently working with
Ask-a-Linguist and posting Queries.  I am a graduate student at Wayne
State University - working on an MA in linguistics (Language Variation
and Change).  Outside of academia, I am the mother of a beautiful and
kind 14 month-old son.  (He just happens to be one of the illustrious
Baby Linguist t-shirt models - the biggest one!)  In my free time
(which I have very little of), I enjoy traveling with my husband and
son, scrapbooking, gardening, jogging, meeting new people & learning
about new cultures...  Fun! Fun!  Since I am currently 3 classes and a
master's essay away from graduation, I really have little time for
these things, but I do manage to squeeze a little of it in!  Work hard
- play hard!
  Again, thank you for your support of LINGUIST, and the support you
have given me.
Renee Galvis

value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra
penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a
