Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
Yesterday, we did not send out any emails but one: a call for support. As usual, our readers were prompt to rise up to the occasion: in one day, we raised $1419.5 from 33 different donors! We knew we could count on you!
We are now only steps away from reaching our advisor’s challenge: if we receive $1453.97 more, our advisors will collectively donate $4,575! We believe that together, we can reach that goal by the end of this week! Also, until we reach our advisor’s challenge, we are keeping the University/Subfield/Countries/Region Challenges running! So when you donate to meet our advisor’s challenge, you can also support your team! The current leaders are: University of Washington/Syntax/USA/North America – but will they be the winners in the end?
Since we realize you’ve already been very supportive, we’d like to thank you and encourage you to spread the word around you, with a special reward. In fact, we’d like to give away this book, generously donated by our supporting publisher John Benjamins: The Written Questionnaire in Social Dialectology, by Stefan Dollinger! https://benjamins.com/#catalog/books/impact.40/main
If you would like to win this book, all you have to do is write on Twitter or Facebook: “#whyIlovetheLINGUISTlist” followed by a message of support: what is it about the LINGUIST List that you like? How have we helped you in your career? or: Why did you choose to donate? One of you will be drawn to win this special prize!
Thank you for your support,
— the LINGUIST List
