Challenge Update: Week 4

Dear all,

We have passed 25% of our fund drive goal! The $10,171 we have collected will cover one semester of stipend and health insurance for one of our student editors.

The fund drive has visibly slowed down this week. But this is not the time to give up hope, not the time to lose heart. LINGUIST List has remained fully operational through the lockdown and financial cuts of the last year and a half. If you want that we continue sending your daily portion of linguistic news, remind you of your conferences and bring you your next job opportunity, please support us. You step up to keep the international community informed, you create this community, and it’s your turn to act. You can donate here, any amount is appreciated:

The first place in the discipline challenge remains with syntax and—like last week—sociolinguistics takes the second place. Pragmatics has won narrow lead over applied linguistics but the difference is minimal and next week may bring some surprises!
In the University challenge, the University of South Carolina is still leading both in terms of the combined amount of the donation but also in the number of donors. Cheers to the University of South Carolina! The second biggest donation comes from the Temple University of Japan. Humblest thanks go to this one donor who brought the Temple University to the second place in the University challenge. Arizona State University takes the third place and seven more universities shared the fourth position in the challenge. In the country challenge, the biggest number of donors comes from the USA, followed by the number of donors in the UK and Germany. Canada is on the fourth place with seven donors. If you are interested to see the updates and follow our drive, the updated numbers are here:
