Subject: Ania Kubisz is Happy to be at LINGUIST
I joined the LINGUIST List not that long ago - in January 2007. I graduated from
Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland, last October and so I thought I was
done with classes. Therefore it was quite unexpected that I ended up coming to
Michigan to work for one of the most well-known linguistics services worldwide
and to continue my studies at Eastern Michigan University.
Working for The LINGUIST List is really challenging and demanding. At the same
time, it's extremely satisfying. Even though it's been almost two months since
I started here, I've only barely touched the surface - there's so much to learn
and every day brings a new encounter! The best is that I'm able to work and study
in a different country, which is a truly great opportunity.
I'm in charge of two areas, Calls and Conferences and the People Directory. Every
day I respond to a number of emails from all around the world and get to read warm
and friendly messages from our users. Posting Calls for Conferences enables me to
keep track of what is happening in the academic world, which is extremely exciting.
Finally, I find it thrilling to develop and gain more computer experience.
The LL team is a group of hardworking students willing to help and who really
enjoy their work, even above and beyond their set weekly schedules. Not only do
all of us have our everyday tasks, but we also are able to work on a number of
projects. After only two months I must admit it is great to be one of The LINGUIST
List team members. I feel lucky to be here. And it will make me happy to watch
LINGUIST grow and provide even more services to the linguist community worldwide.
I'd like to send a warm thank you to all of you who have already donated. Please
remember that thanks to your contributions we can provide our services. At the
same time you give the students the opportunity to study and develop.
Thank you for your support!
Message 2: Notice Board: LINGUIST's Classified Adverts
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: Notice Board: LINGUIST's Classified Adverts
Looking for a person you took linguistics classes with at your old university
oh-so-many years ago but can't find an address or e-mail? Maybe you have a rare
collection of linguistic journals in mint condition that you no longer have shelf
space for, and would like to donate? Or maybe you need to sublet your apartment
while you are away doing fieldwork?
For cases like these and many more, when you have something to offer your fellow
linguists or need some kind of help from them, come to The LINGUIST List Notice
Board! Once your notice is posted - for free - it stays up for 60 days. If you
are lucky, someone who is interested will respond to you by e-mail, and your
situation will be solved.
The Notice Board is updated each Friday, not daily as most of our other categories.
It may not be the busiest part of our web site, but it always has a few notices
of interest there.
Questions of a strictly academic nature will be redirected to our Ask-A-Linguist.
And as we run an academic site, we will only post notices that are relevant to
our academic profession. Those interested in posting job notices related to the
commercial sector will be redirected to our Jobs facility where possible.
If you have ever used the Notice Board in the past, we sincerely hope that you
got what you needed out of it! But if you haven't used it yet, remember that
it is a great place to browse:
Finally, if you appreciate what web pages such as the Notice Board have to offer
you, please consider sending a donation to The LINGUIST List during this year's
Fund Drive 2007. We are grateful for your support!
The LINGUIST List
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.
See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 2007
LINGUIST List Superhero Adventure for some Fund Drive fun!
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:
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!
