Dear Subscribers, 

Since 1993, when the LINGUIST assistantships were inaugurated,
LINGUIST subscribers have financed the educations of 45 outstanding
graduate students, including this year's crew. Those of you who have
contributed to LINGUIST over the past 10 years can feel proud that you
have helped these students pursue their educational and career goals.
Please help us support the outstanding students who are now providing
you with the services that you have come to expect from LINGUIST. If
you have not yet donated to the Linguist Fund Drive, please do so
now--all of your donations go directly to student support.

Over the past few days your donations have funded another one of our
crew members--Tomoko Okuno. As each on of our crew members is funded,
we will post their personal letter so that you can see where your
donations go! Below is Tomoko's letter.

Dear subscribers,

Thank you very much for your support!! First of all, let me talk about
myself. I am a graduate student at Eastern Michigan University. I
have been working with LINGUIST for almost two years. Two years! It
sounds a little long, but it was exactly like 'Time flies...' I am
involved in the E-MELD project, especially researching how to present
language data saved in the XML files, and ALL Language Project, which
aims to develop our database for information about people/linguist
focusing on their language and/or language family specialty.

LINGUIST is the most wonderful place that I have ever encountered.
When I just started, I did not anything about computer programming.
Computers were just tools to type documents and to use the Internet.
However, now, I can proudly say that I know how to program!! The
reason why I wrote LINGUIST is the most wonderful place is that there
is a very warm atmosphere. We are learning together and helping each
other. Therefore, I think I can learn several things through working

I am very happy to work here and to participate in the several
interesting projects. And, again, thank you very much for your

Tomoko Okuno

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!
