 Dear Fellow Linguists, 

We are almost at the weekend and we are almost at the end of Week 5 of Fund Drive 2015! We are on our way to hitting the $30,000 mark soon—we are less than $100 away! Will you help us reach that number today by donating? We NEED to reach our $79,000 goal soon. 


As a reminder, we have several donation benefits you can enjoy no matter how much you donate. Along with supporting LINGUIST, you can use your donation to help your university, business, subfield, country, or region in our

In our Subfield Challenge, the five ten rank as follows: 

1. Computational Linguistics ($6,610) 
2. Syntax ($3,946) 
3. Sociolinguistics ($3,178) 
4. Phonology ($2,464) 
5. Historical Linguistics ($1,780) 

Syntax and phonology were the previous frontrunners in the first few weeks of Fund Drive, but computational linguistics and sociolinguistics have clearly made major efforts! Will the other subfields fight back for the lead in Week 6?
