Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Graduate Assistantships and Student Employment LL-MAP brainstorming The LINGUIST List, with the support of donations from subscribers and the publishing community, currently provides support for 11 graduate students, who serve as LINGUIST List editors. Graduate assistants are usually enrolled in the Eastern Michigan University linguistics program, although some past GAs have been pursuing degrees in computer science or a related discipline. If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies at EMU and working at LINGUIST, please see the linguistics department site. To see what our graduate students are doing, view the ILIT Student News.

Summer Internships LINGUISTs hard at work

If you're interested in working with LINGUIST, but have other commitments during the school year, consider applying for our summer internship program! Interns will have the opportunity to participate in the daily operations of the LINGUIST List and its parent organization, the Institute for Language Information and Technology (ILIT) at Eastern Michigan University.

Some of the projects interns may work on include:

Internships are generally available for a three-month period between May and August, 40 hours per week, and interns receive a modest stipend. Housing is not provided, although LINGUIST can provide some assistance in locating accommodations. International applicants are encouraged, but must have or obtain a visa that permits them to work in the US.

Keep an eye out for the announcement of our summer internships, which is posted in the fall!!
