Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers, Supporters, and Friends,
As of Friday evening, Fund Drive has made $28,738.90. While we are so grateful for all of the support we have received thus far, we are still over $50,000 away from our goal. Making that goal is VITAL to the Linguist List operation—without it, we cannot continue.

In our Subfield Challenge, computational linguistics continues to dominate, with syntax and sociolinguistics in second and third place, respectively. We are excited to share that we now have ten subfields that have hit the $1,000 mark! We challenge ALL subfields to hit these numbers, and for these three to keep fighting for the top spots!
