In our Subfield Challenge, with one very incredible donation, computational linguistics has taken the top spot and is not dominating! Together, computational linguistics have donated over $6,395! Syntax is in second place with $3,696 in donations, and sociolinguistics in third with $2,683! We challenge ALL subfields to hit these numbers, and for these three to keep fighting for the top spots!
