Prize of the Day Week was such a success that we've decided to keep it running throughout this week. As you've no doubt heard, and told all your phonologist friends, we've got a truly spectacular prize for today and tomorrow's donors: The Blackwell Companion to Phonology (worth an astounding $995), donated by Wiley-Blackwell! Details here: http://linguistlist.org/issues/23/23-1523.html
We'd like to congratulate some of last week's Prize of the Day winners, while we're talking about prizes. In order of day the prize was awarded:
*Winners of a one-year Elsevier journal subscription of their choice: Oriana Reid-Collins Laura-Andreea Sterian (University of Edinburgh) Michele Siegler (King's College London)
*Frances Krueger-Jackson (University of Illinois at Chicago) is the winner of a one-year subscription to Anthropological Linguistics from the University of Nebraska Press!
*Some of the ten winners of Many Morphologies (stay tuned to learn who else won!): Misha Becker (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) Piotr Banski (University of Warsaw) Alfredo Arnaiz (Microsoft) Mary Paster (Pomona College) Elitzur Bar-Asher Siegal (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Our most sincere thanks to our winners, and to all of our donors! Thanks to you, this has been our best Fund Drive ever. Help us keep it going strong until the end! If there's a Prize of the Day that catches your eye, every donor for that day is entered in the raffle! $5 for a thousand-dollar book series is good math-- donate today for your chance to win:

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.
