Dear Linguists,

I joined LINGUIST in May 2000 as a graduate assistant to work on the
LINGUIST database/site design. I have grown so much in the last 4
years at LINGUIST from being a part-time GA to a full-time project
manager. I have learnt a lot of things as well including programming,
linguistics, designing interfaces, and managing LINGUIST crew.
LINGUIST crew is an amazing group of hard-working students who are
talented, and easy to manage. They are always willing to help each
other. Different cultures and academic backgrounds has never hindered
our work flow, or friendship -- I think that is our strength! When I
am not overseeing some project, or tutoring new editors in databases,
I program ColdFusion pages and sometimes PHP pages. I love being a
programmer and a project manager -- it is like 'having my cake and
eating it too'.

On a personal level, I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl,
Mandira. Becoming a mom has not kept me from working for LINGUIST. I
love all the challenges this job offers everyday, it is very

I would like to thank you all for your support -- you are the reason

This Year the LINGUIST List hope to raise $60,000. This money will go
to help keep the List running, by supporting all of our Student
Editors for the coming year.

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can also pledge right now and pay later, at:

For all information on donating, including information on how to

If you have already pledged to LINGUIST and would now like to pay by
credit card, please go to:

and select 'PAY PREVIOUS PLEDGE' as the Type of Payment from the

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University
and as such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is
a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is
38-6005986. These donations can be offset against your federal and
sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will
match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this
entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us
a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer.
This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
