Become a Language Warrior: Donate Today!

Dear LINGUIST List Readers:

Today, we are introducing a very special theme week.  Every day we’ll be giving away a prize donated by The Language Conservancy (http://www.languageconservancy.org/), a collaborator of the LINGUIST List.

The Language Conservancy is dedicated to rescuing the world’s endangered languages, restoring them to vital use, and safeguarding them for future generations.  They help prevent the extinction of languages by: 1) raising funds for research; 2) increasing the international public awareness of the social and personal consequences of indigenous language loss; and 3) providing technical support to organizations and communities engaged in revitalizing their languages.

Today, we are giving away this Language Warrior t-shirt (size large):

A general favorite among the LINGUIST List team, this t-shirt can be yours for a minimum donation of $25.  Become a Language Warrior and donate before noon tomorrow (March 31, 11:59 am EST) to win this great t-shirt.  You can donate here:

Stay tuned this week for more fun prizes from The Language Conservancy. We will be giving away some awesome Lakhota, Hidatsa and Crow language resources.

Thanks and good luck!
