Message 1: Editor Jessica Boynton on Life at LINGUIST

Subject: Editor Jessica Boynton on Life at LINGUIST


Fund Drive 2005 is now on! Visit http://linguistlist.org/donate.html to donate now!
Picture it:
It's a crisp autumn day in Southern Michigan, USA and a twenty-something
year-old shuts down her computer after a long shift at work. She meanders her
way out of the office, sending see-you-tomorrows to her line of coworkers. Then
- mere yards away from the door - she stops, thinks and turns around to return
to her computer. Her coworkers glance quizzically at her expedient return and
she replies "there's nothing I'd rather be doing".

That's what LINGUIST List is to me. It's where I go to pass time between
classes. It's where I feel athome and get to do something that really feels
important. It's my answer to the question every career counselor asks, "What
would you do if you had a million dollars?"

You might wonder what's so wonderful about a job at LINGUIST List, so I'll just
describe some of the things I get to do here:

There is, of course, posting the issues that our subscribers send to us. I,
personally, post sums, media and support. This means that I get to read through
scads of points of view on important linguistic questions, keep up to date on
linguistic resources on the web and in the news, and I get posted (even before
you do) on opportunities available to Masters and PhD students. How lucky can
an aspiring linguist get?

I also work on some other projects under LINGUIST List. It's a little-known
fact that the research assistants here also work on the DATA, ALL and E-MELD
projects. The majority of my workday is dedicated to E-MELD.

The E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data) is a
resource for documentary linguists and provides information on collecting
andarchiving data in enduring formats. My work for the project has included
(for example) updating the glossary, which expanded my technical vocabulary more
than you would readily believe, and writing and updating pages on various
technologies and documentary methods, such as IGT, metadata, annotation and
archiving. Currently, I'm working on the Kayardild pages; I get to research and
write about the digitization of the language documentation and some about the
language itself. It's the sort of stuff I would read on my own time and I get
paid to do it!

This inevitable tag to this all (especially during fund-drive season) is that I
don't get paid unless LINGUIST List gets enough money to keep running. And, as
much as I would really love to do it for free, euphoria doesn't pay the bills.

So please, the next time you use one of our many services, think of the college
students who are pouring devoted hours into the pages. Our search engines have
pointed you to resources that helped you with class assignments and lectures;
our issues have kept the linguistic world at your fingertips; our pages have
helped teach you how to be the best linguist you can be. Our continued service
and dedication depend on your support.

Please donate.

Thank You,
Jessica Boynton

Message 2: How to Donate...

Subject: How to Donate...


This Year the LINGUIST List hope to raise $48,867. 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.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

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

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

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!
