Subject: All About: LINGUIST's Language Resources and Language Search

Dear LINGUIST Subscribers,

One useful area of our site is the language resources area, , which contains
information on languages, language families, and links to numerous
websites with language-related information.

Our language search facility at:
searches a database of over 7,000 languages using over 47,000 language
and alternate language names, including extinct and nearly extinct
languages. We are in the process of expanding our language search
facility, which now includes the ability to search for languages by
geographic location. Our database also contains detailed information
about language families and constructed languages. A new feature of
our language search is providing links to language-specific
information on other linguistics sites and search engines such as
Ethnologue and Google as well as all the resources in the LINGUIST
database related to the language.

The language resources area provides items of interest to the casual
investigator or the serious student. From the language resources area
you can find links to dictionaries, natural language links including
language families, language metasites, and writing systems, and
constructed languages and language novelties.

Whether you're just browsing language information or searching for a
specific language, you'll find the language resources area useful.
Your donations allow us to continue maintaining our database and
improving our capabilities to search and display language information
and links to relevant language websites.

We rely on your support to continue serving the linguistic community.
Join in the effort to keep LINGUIST going at .

We appreciate your continued interest in and support of LINGUIST List.

With Thanks,

Naomi Fox

Subject: How to Donate...

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 donate right now using our secure credit card form, at:

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

For all information on donating, including information on how to
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

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
dropdown list provided.

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!
