Subject: Jobs on LINGUIST - Another Key Service from LINGUIST

Before we dive into the wonderful world of Jobs on LINGUIST, Happy St
Patrick's day!

One day it was lovely and sunny
So Paddy went courting his honey
The Blarney Stone he did kiss
To convince her of this:
"Give LINGUIST List all your money..."

And we sure have all kissed the Blarney Stone as well in the hope that
the following messages will be as persuasive and eloquent as
possible. So may you have the luck of the Irish and C�ad Mile F�ilte
to our tour of Jobs on LINGUIST.


Dear Linguists,

It's that time again, our yearly Fund Drive! And you, our valued
subscribers, may be wondering why we bombard you with all of these
letters from us here at LINGUIST. Well, it's simple really -- we want
you to know how we are using your donations, and how grateful we are
for them.

One of the many (and varied) uses of your donations is the Jobs
facility. The Jobs section is one of the most widely viewed areas on
our site; this section alone is visited, on average, around 600 times
a week! The Jobs area of the website allows users to browse current
job listings, search the jobs in the database, read archived issues,
and submit job announcements. This is a very versatile site, assisting
both people who are looking for a job as well as people who have a job
to post. Also, every job posted goes out in our daily mailing to tens
of thousands of subscribers.

In December, I 'inherited' the position of Jobs Editor. Until then, I
had never realized the volume of Jobs that we post. 557 Job
announcements were posted in 2002! As Jobs Editor, I see every
announcement that comes in (at least since December!). I think it is a
good experience for me, getting to see all the jobs that are available
to linguists, since, one day, I'll be looking for one. And, I will
certainly know where to look! LINGUIST posts jobs from all around the
world, in every sub-field of linguistics. It feels good to be able to
help the discipline out in this manner--perpetuating it. And by
donating to LINGUIST, this is what you are doing. You are helping us
provide the Linguistic community with valuable resources, helping to
perpetuate and expand the discipline.

Even the smallest donation goes a long way in helping us reach our
fund-drive goal, and I would like to encourage those of you who are
thinking about donating to do so. You can get a cool tee-shirt, or a
cookbook...But the most rewarding thing about donating (besides the
cookbook) is knowing that you are helping to support the field that
you love.

I would also like to thank everyone who has already donated, as well
as all the Publishers, Institutions, and individuals who donate
throughout the year. You are what keeps us here.

Sarah Murray
Jobs Editor


This year we need to raise $50,000 to keep LINGUIST alive. So far we
have raised $13,556.33 which is really good - but we still have a long
way to go. Please make a donation; every little helps.

Thank you for keeping LINGUIST alive.

Message 2: A New Editor and LSA

A new editor and LSA
Sarah Murray, Wayne State University

I just started working for LINGUIST in September; in January most of
us here at LINGUIST went to LSA in Atlanta, where we met most of
you. Being new to LINGUIST, it was a great opportunity for me to
interact with people that I know only as email addresses. The linguist
crew held office hours during LSA, and many of you came to visit us,
to ask questions, or just to chat. I encourage those of you who didn't
stop by to do so next year; you can meet those people who you know
only as email addresses!

This year's LSA was especially significant for LINGUIST because we
received the Victoria A. Fromkin distinguished service award, for
service to the discipline. As a new member of the LINGUIST crew, it
was very inspiring for me to see the Linguistic community honor the
LINGUIST List for its services. I hope that those of you who got to
meet some of us enjoyed meeting the people behind the website-- the
people that you support with your donations. I enjoyed the variety of
talks that I was able to attend. Like everyone, I have my own personal
interests in Linguistics (Syntax, Morphology, Logic), and it was
wonderful to be able to attend talks on subjects that I am not so
familiar with.

It is amazing to me that such a thing as LINGUIST exists, and that I
can be a part of it. Everyone that I have talked to about LINGUIST
since I have been working here has so many positive things to say
about our services. Also, users often email suggestions about our
site, and I really appreciate the input. LINGUIST is here as a service
to the Linguistic community, so your suggestions are taken into
consideration when we update the website.

Besides the services that LINGUIST offers to the Linguistic community,
it also offers invaluable opportunities to Linguistic students like me
who, God willing, will someday be a part of the Linguistics
community. It is your donations that allow LINGUIST to sponsor so many
students. So, I would like to say a personal 'thank you' to all the
subscribers out there, and to all those institutions and individuals
who donate during the fund drive and throughout the year. Your
donations keep us going!

This year we hope to raise $50,000 to support the students who work on
LINGUIST List and keep the list running. Thank you from all the crew

entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us
a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer.

value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra
penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a
