Various linguistic resources can only be found on the World Wide Web. Luckily, LINGUIST has an area for that!
Web Resources/Software: This area of the LINGUIST List contains links to websites and software devoted to natural and constructed languages, to writing systems, and to language resources on the web (such as dictionaries).
For Web Resources, visit: http://linguistlist.org/langres/index.cfm
For Software, visit: http://linguistlist.org/sp/software-index.cfm
FYI: As mentioned in a previous letter, the FYI area contains information that doesn't neatly fit into any single LINGUIST posting topic, such as calls for book chapters, award recipient announcements, new journal editor announcements, scholarship announcements, etc:
Discussion: The Discussion area is one of LINGUIST's best kept secrets (but we'd like it to be not-so-secret). Discussions posted on the LINGUIST site have resulted in many publications, collaborations, and thought-provoking linguistic observations and ponderings. Join the discussion!
Mailing Lists: There are a number of mailing lists linked in here that are related to different facets of linguistics and language:

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.
