Andrea Berez was an LL crew member until a few years ago. She has now gone on to
do a PhD program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Your contributions
and donations made it possible for Andrea and other crew members to complete their
MAs in Linguistics and continue on to PhD programs and to contribute to the discipline
in various ways. Read Andrea's letter on what she has done after leaving LINGUIST:

"The folks at the LINGUIST List asked me to write an alumna letter for this year's
Fund Drive, letting you know what I've been up to lately. Even though it's only been
about 18 months since I left the LINGUIST crew, I'm more than happy to oblige. It
doesn't feel like all that long since I wrote my last fund drive letter to you all!

I finished my M.A. in linguistics from Wayne State University in 2006, and that fall
I enrolled as a PhD student in the linguistics department at the University of
California, Santa Barbara. I'm now in my second year here at UCSB, where my classmates
are brilliant, the faculty are world-class, and the landscape is breathtaking.

My previous work as a member of the LINGUIST crew has had a weighty influence on
my research at the PhD level. As an employee of the LINGUIST List, I spent three
semesters and parts of two summers up in Alaska working on the Dena'ina Archiving,
Training & Access project, which was an NSF-funded project to the LINGUIST List
and the Alaska Native Language Center in Fairbanks. My interest in Athabaskan
languages and linguistic fieldwork developed while I was there, and I'm still
interested in both. Last summer I went back to Alaska to hunt down old recordings
of spontaneous Dena'ina conversation (with some generous assistance from the Jacobs
Fund and the Robert Oswalt Endangered Languages Fund). This coming summer I'm
planning to go to Alaska's Copper River valley to begin fieldwork on the Ahtna
language, which will be the subject of my (eventual) dissertation.

I still read the LINGUIST postings every day--as you all know, it's the premier
source of information for finding out about the happenings in the linguistic world.
Some fascinating new projects have been going on at LINGUIST since I left: Multi-Tree,
a searchable database of language relationship hypotheses that uses an eye-popping
"star-tree" display; and LL-MAP, a geographic information system designed to aggregate
geolinguistic data from a range of sources.

I am still in contact with members of the current LL crew--some of the hardest-working
folks I know--and with Helen and Anthony, who are like a second set of parents to all
of us. I'm lucky to know all of them, and luckier still to have had the opportunity
to work alongside them. Being part of the LINGUIST List family was an experience of
immeasurable value and has been instrumental in shaping my future. And I have all of
you to thank for that, since your yearly donations to the LL Fund Drive are what keeps
the organization going and allows LL to train linguists who, like me, feel enormous
gratitude to the field."

From Andrea's letter you can see how your donations have made it possible for her
to go through Graduate School. But also, your contributions have helped her be able
support her research and to go to Alaska to document varioyus languages and contribute
to the discipline.

Help us do the same thing for other linguistics students by donating:

Thank you


This Year the LINGUIST List hopes 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.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 
2008 LINGUIST List Circus and join us on our many shows!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to:

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!
