Dear Friends of LINGUIST List,
As of 5:30 pm (EST) on Tuesday, Fund Drive 2015 has raised $32,582.50. Unfortunately, we are no where near our goal.
Here is a bit of an update on how our challenges are going! Don’t like these results? Donate and help your subfield, university, business, region, and country rise to the top of our leader boards!
In our Subfield Challenge, the top five rank as follows:
1. Computational Linguistics ($6,870)
2. Syntax ($4,181)
3. Sociolinguistics ($3,303)
4. Phonology ($2,569)
5. Semantics ($2,040)
We now have FIVE subfields that have donated over $2,000 each! Historical Linguists, you’re next! Who is willing to help their subfield knock computational linguistics out of the top spot? That spot once belonged to phonology and syntax. Are will willing to fight for it back?
Please visit http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/subfield/ for a full list!
In our University Challenge, the top five rank as follows:
1. Indiana University Bloomington ($2,150 – 19 donors)
