Call for Donation: LinguistList

Dear Ling Alert readers,

Thanks very much for your support over the past 5 years. Hopefully this little website has been somewhat helpful to you. As I said on the about page, most of the information posted here comes from, without which Ling Alert wouldn’t exist. LinguistList is a great and unique service that benefits linguists as well as linguistics as a field. But I’m afraid it’s been taken for granted.

Can you imagine the linguistics community without LinguistList? It’s not a possible world that I want to live in. That’s why I have donated to their funddrive. If you also feel that LinguistList or Ling Alert have been helpful to you, I encourage you to do the same thing. Here is how: Thanks!
