Dear LINGUIST List readers,

Sociolinguists have overtaken Syntacticians once again in the 
Battle of the Fields!


In this recent switch, the Sociolinguists have built up 
a lead of $300 over Syntacticians--but will their lect have 
enough prestige to keep its staying power? With only $1128 left 
to end Fund Drive, now is the time for Syntax to take back their 
lead! Can anyone challenge our Sociolinguists and counter 
their bold maneuver?


You can help us with your donation today, no matter how big 

or small! If you haven't given to LINGUIST List yet but enjoy 
our services, please give what you can to help us make our 
goal! And don't forget to support your school or subfield 
when you donate today!


Thank you,
-The LINGUIST List Crew

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

return (U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site,

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will 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
