Subject: Job Announcements in 1999 - Fund Drive Day 2

Dear Linguists:

Did you realize (we didn't) that The LINGUIST List posted 569 job 
announcements in 1999? 

Of these, 280 contained the substring "univ" in the text; and only 
55 contained the substring "ESL" anywhere in the announcement. 
So, from this admittedly unsystematic count, we would guess that 
at least 51% of linguistics jobs are at universities; but a very 
substantial number are also being advertised by industry. 

And--of more immediate relevance to us--a very substantial number 
of linguistics jobs are being advertised through The LINGUIST List.

What IS the immediate relevance? Well, this is the week of the 
LINGUIST fund drive. So, we thought we would remind you of the 
functions that LINGUIST serves in the linguistics community. 

Many people have told us that the LINGUIST job listings have 
facilitated their search for employment. But, unfortunately for us, 
only 58 of the 569 job posters sent us a donation in return for our 
services. So we must continue to rely on the generosity of our 
subscribers to keep LINGUIST running.

To those of you who helped arrange those 58 job payments, we offer our
heartiest thanks. And hearty thanks are due as well to the persons
and institutions who have already responded to our call for funds this
year. Their names are listed at the end of this message. Thanks to
these generous persons, we have raised $13,433 of the $35,000 that
we need to fund the 9 Linguist List student editors and programmers.

Please join these supporters by donating via our secure credit card 
form at or by sending your 
check to 

The EMU LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund

Or you can hit "Reply" and send us your pledge by email, prior to
sending your check. Then we will be able to list you immediately as
one of our donors; and we may be able to reach our goal (and halt
these Fund Drive messages) a bit earlier.

Remember that Linguist T-shirts and sweatshirts are being offered
in return for donations this year. 
Check for photos and prices.

Your support is of critical importance to us.
