LINGUIST around the World
This year during Fund Drive we want to stress the importance of LINGUIST List and how much its use has spread around the world. For that reason, we asked our users to send in pictures of themselves wearing LINGUIST attire wherever they are or go.
Send us your picture so we can add it to this list!

Oliver Stegen: In my role as linguistic consultant for minority language projects in Northern Tanzania, I have been invited to Musoma to help research the Zanaki language (among others) which was the mother tongue of Tanzania’s first president, the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere.
