Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers, Supporters, and Friends,
As of Tuesday evening at 7:15 pm (EST), Fund Drive has made $ 34,634.66. Please help us reach the $35,000 mark tonight. LINGUIST List needs to earn $79,000 this year from Fund Drive.
If you haven’t already heard, we now also have an option for you to become a recurring donor. Please visit http://linguistlist.org/issues/26/26-2068.html for more information!
In our Subfield Challenge, computational linguistics continues to hold a strong lead, with syntax and sociolinguistics in second and third place, respectively. Language documentation just hit the $1,000 mark, so we now have TWELVE subfields that have donated over $1,000! Applied linguistics, you’re next!
Please visit http://funddrive.linguistlist.org/subfield/ for a full list!
Our University Challenge is on fire with stiff competition between Indiana University Bloomington and the University of Washington! IUB has held the top stop all of Fund Drive—but yesterday UW tied it up and even took the lead this
morning! However, thanks to some very generous donations from IUB, Indiana is back on top! What a wild day! Who is willing to challenge these two incredible universities?!
Today we received donations from University of Washington (times two!), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Indiana University Bloomington (times three!), and Qatar University!
