Message 1: ISO 639-3 Change Request Review Cycle has Begun
Date: 03-Apr-2007
From: Joan Spanne <iso639-3sil.org>
Subject: ISO 639-3 Change Request Review Cycle has Begun


March 30, 2007, was the closing date for sending in Change Request forms
for consideration during this first three-month review period for Candidate
Change Requests, which will take place April through June 2007. All
Candidate Change Requests may be viewed via the Change Request Index,
http://www.sil.org/iso639-3/chg_requests.asp, which permits sorting in
various ways and has links to specific documentation for each change being
proposed. The outcome of each Change Request will be announced in July
2007. Comments on any change request may be directed to iso639-3sil.org;
comments will also be posted to the Change Request documentation page for
viewing by others. Please include the Change Request number in the subject
line.

Please take a moment to look at proposed changes for languages in your area
of interest and send in your comments. This is your means of ''voting'' on
changes to improve the ISO 639-3 standard.

You may also continue to propose additional changes, which will be
considered in a review cycle later this year.

Thanks,
Joan Spanne

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $55,000. 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.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by

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!
