Dear Subscribers, 	 	 

As many of you already know, the Query issues(Qs) are a very 
popular feature of LINGUIST List. However, even we did not fully 	 
appreciate the strong demand for this service until we checked our 
records and discovered that we posted 630 Qs in 1999. 	 	 
Of these, 409 Qs contained the substring 'reference', and 108 
contained the substring 'thesis' in the text. This data alone shows 
just how important this service is to linguistic research, 
specifically providing information exchange at a graduate level 
and above. 	 
The large number of summaries (SUMs) of the answers posted 
suggests that the service works rather efficiently, and those 	
who seek do indeed find the answers. Moreover, the linguistic 
community, as a whole, benefits from the research included in 
those summarized responses. 	

As with all LINGUIST issues, both Queries and Summaries are archived
for your future reference on the LINGUIST website. And as with most
services on LINGUIST, the Qs feature is completely free. But of
course, it would not be possible for The Linguist List to maintain
this popular service without the funding which your donations
