Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
The first round of the Grand 2012 Limerick Contest is nearing its end. Voting on Round 1 of submissions will close tomorrow at 5:00 pm (EST), so head on over to the limerick page and be sure to vote for your favorite:
We'll be accepting entries for Round 2 until tomorrow at noon (EST). Send us your best shot at that time-honored and deadly serious artistic form, the limerick, and you may win a prize AND the undying respect of your colleagues! Remember, limericks should be somehow related to linguistics, and appropriate for viewing by tender young eyes (such as those of innocent undergraduates).
On Friday, we'll announce the winner of Round 1, and unveil the competitors for Round 2. We're pleased to tell you that we've received a lot of very, very good entries this week. Get excited for a veritable smorgasbord of puns, clever rhymes, and tongue-in-cheek pokes at the field!

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
