Subject: Job Announcements in 2000 - Fund Drive Day 2

Dear Linguists,

Can you believe that we posted 834 separate job announcements last
year? This is an increase of fifty percent over the year before! In
fact, out of all of LINGUIST's postings for 2000, a quarter were job

Of these, 348 had the words "professor", "lecturer" or "teacher" in
the text, which suggests that about 500 were from industry. And of
more immediate relevance to us is the fact that a very substantial
number of linguistics jobs are being advertised through The LINGUIST

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

We have been told by many people that they found employment through
the job listings on LINGUIST. But unfortunately for us, only a small
number of our job posters actually send a donation for our posting
their ad. If you found employment, or found a valuable staff member
through LINGUIST and have not yet donated, now is the perfect time. To
those of you who helped arrange job payments, we offer our sincere
thanks. We rely on your generosity to keep LINGUIST running.

And hearty thanks are due as well to the persons and organizations 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 $14,236 of the $40,000 that we need to fund the
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
c/o Helen Aristar-Dry
Dept. of English
Eastern Michigan U.
Ypsilanti, MI 
USA 48197

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.

As a 501(c)3 organization, LINGUIST qualifies for corporate
donation-matching programs; and, of course, your donation is tax

And remember, if your donation is $25 or over, you can get a LINGUIST
T-shirt! For larger amounts, you may qualify for a long-sleeved shirt
or a sweatshirt. And new this year are baby T-shirts, size 2-4
years. For styles, prices, and photos go to: . 

Don't forget to let us know your mailing address and what style and
size you would like!

And don't forget to find the "Singing Pig" on the LINGUIST Home Page and
click for our sophisticated production, "The LINGUIST Fund Drive

Thanks for your continued support of LINGUIST,
