Soooo close! Syntax is sooo close to taking the lead once again. Even with the heroic efforts from Roger Shuy and the Sociolinguistic group to raise $7094, Syntax looks poised to reclaim their title with $7082. With only $12 needed to match Sociolinguistics, will Syntax take the lead, or will Sociolinguistics fight to widen the gap? Donate today to determine the victor!
We'd also like to recognize some of our other subfields who are performing admirably in this battle. Semantics is now in third place and racing towards the $5000 mark with $4441. Computational Linguistics is not far behind with $4019. Language Acquisition is also one of our distinguished top five champions with a total of $3390! Want to rearrange the board a bit or see your subfield in this list? Make a statement with your contribution today!

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.
