Subject: Where are they now? - Fund Drive Update

Dear Linguists,

Thanks to the generosity of the people listed at the end of this
message, we have collected $34,060 of the $35,000 we need. That means we
need only $940 more in order to support the students who will edit
LINGUIST in the coming year.

Some of you have noticed that our student editors have been writing
some of the fund drive letters. This year's crew also planned the
fund drive from its inception: they ordered the T-shirts, took the
promotional pictures, put up the fund drive web page (and designed the
piggy-bank emblem), and have been spending 4 hours a day processing
donations--in addition to performing their regular LINGUIST duties.

We have always been extremely lucky in the caliber of students we
have been able to enlist as LINGUIST editors. And they, of course,
have been lucky to have the support of you, our LINGUIST subscribers.

Since 1994, when the LINGUIST fellowhips were inaugurated, LINGUIST
subscribers have financed the educations of 12 outstanding graduate
students. We thought that you might be interested to learn what they 
are doing now. Your donations funded:

 2 student editors at Texas A&M: 

	One has finished his Ph.D. and is now an Assistant Professor;
	the other is currently working on her dissertation (having taken some
	time off for motherhood).

 8 student editors in the M.A. program in linguistics at Eastern Michigan U.:

	4 are now in Ph.D. programs in linguistics.

	1 will enter a Ph.D. program in linguistics in Fall, 2000

	2 hold positions in the computer industry. One is using
	his linguistics experience to build a knowledge base; the other is
	an Internet security consultant.

	1 (the one who designed our website, stationery, and T-shirts) is 
	now a graphics designer for a large newspaper

 2 student programmers at Eastern Michigan U.:
	Both completed their Masters degrees in computer science and
	now hold jobs in software design.

As you see, your donations have contributed not just to The LINGUIST
List but also but to the future of linguistics. Most of the 12
LINGUIST editors you have supported have gone on to pursue careers in
the discipline. Several others have drifted toward computer-related
employment, and their LINGUIST List experiences have nurtured this
interest as well as helped them to secure the jobs they wanted. 

Those of you who have contributed to LINGUIST over the past 6 years
can feel proud that you have helped these students pursue their
educational and career goals. Please help us support the outstanding
students who are now providing you with the services you have come to
expect from LINGUIST. If you have not yet donated to the Linguist
Fund Drive, please do so now.

There are three convenient methods by which you can make your donation
to LINGUIST. And, if you contribute $30 or more, we'll send you a
T-shirt or sweatshirt as a token of our appreciation. Please see our
Fund Drive page for styles, sizes, donation categories, and photos:

You can donate via our secure credit card form at:

or by sending your check to:
The LINGUIST Editorial Support Fund
Dept. of English
Eastern Michigan U.
Ypsilanti, MI USA 48197

If you like, 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. Please remember to include your
snail-mail address, along with your size preference, if you would like
to receive a LINGUIST shirt.

As our fund drive approaches its conclusion, we want to once again
thank you all for your continued support of LINGUIST.

James, Naomi, Jody, John, Sudhi, Qian, Ljuba
