In addition to showcasing famous linguists who have been influential in our lives, we'd also like to shine some light on former LINGUIST Listers who have gone on to bigger and better (is it possible to be better than LINGUIST?) things. With the help of subscriber donations, these "LINGUISTs of the Day" were able to complete their M.A. degrees. Please donate now so we can keep these success stories coming!

Sincerely,
The 2006 LINGUIST Crew

Your Donations at Work
A Step-by-Step Tale

3.The Linguist List, funded by your donations, paid the tuition for all Karen Milligan's course work.

4.Karen Milligan (sadly) resigned her duties as Editor in Chief of The Linguist List to work on her Master's Essay.

5.The day she defended her essay, Karen Milligan was asked if she wanted to teach an undergrad class.

6.Karen Milligan is now an adjunct faculty member in the Linguistics Department at Wayne State University.
