Dear Linguist List Subscribers,

As you all know, the main reason for having a Fund Drive
each year is to raise money to support graduate students
going through their MA studies. This support also allows
them to prepare to be highly qualified linguists when leaving
our office and join the rest of you out there doing the
magnificent work you all do. The money raised is used to
support the student editors who work at LINGUIST and help
facilitate and improve all the services that LINGUIST has
been able to provide to you for free for so many years!

During my years at LINGUIST and with your donations during
past Fund Drives, I have been able to:
- Finish my undergraduate studies in Linguistics and TESOL.
- Complete my MA in Linguistics
- Learn to digitize Mocovi data using ELAN
- Transcribe and translate Mocovi data collected in northern
- Learn programming to maintain and develop existing and new
areas of the LINGUIST List site such as the publications area,
review discussion area, and more
- Help develop a new and free service for conference organizers
to accept and review abstracts called EasyAbs
- Lead the Publications team for two years to provide more
information about books, journals and TOCs to all users, while
attracting new publishers as supporters to LINGUIST and providers
of more linguistic publications.
- Develop the Cambridge Extra magazine, which allows all users
to read full articles, receive discounts and enter into contests
to win CUP merchandise
- Learn what it entails to lead a Fund Drive in all its different
- Organize workshops held at the LINGUIST List office to provide
contact between students and linguists who are working on
related projects.
- Attend several conferences, such as MLS, LSA and more.
- Direct the Linguist list fixes team, which reviews the Linguist
site to keep it current and working properly while also trying to
develop new areas that will be of use to all subscribers and users.
- Lead the Quality Control team, which is solely devoted to test
all changes to the Linguist site, looking for problems in the
pages, code and also browsers, so that the LINGUIST List site
is always available to you.
- Develop the website for the 2007 North American Computational
Linguistic Olympiad (NAMCLO) (http://namclo.linguistlist.org/).
- Learn to be a team leader for several teams at LINGUIST, which
includes learning organizational skill, planning of the projects
and tasks to perform, assignment of tasks, problem solving of
issues that raise with tasks and between team members, among
- Participate in the development of grant proposals for projects
that LINGUIST is working on, which will allow me to one day
write my own!
- Learn about the best ways in which data is stored and collected
to be able to preserve it and make it available to other people.
View these at: http://emeld.org/school/index.html
- Participate in the LEGO grant that LINGUIST is working on at
this time, to digitize various dictionaries and make them
available to the public.

But most of all, it allowed me to go through my studies in
Linguistics with the certainty and confidence that while I
was getting the contributions from all of you to support me,
I was also doing something to give back to the linguistics
community by working for LINGUIST. Providing you with information
that is useful and sometimes essential to users, such as articles
or books needed for classes or research, job postings for those
looking for a new job or their "first" job, conferences where
people can submit research papers, and many others, allow me to
say thank you for supporting me and my studies every time you
donated to LINGUIST.

I know that this is true for each person who works here. Most
people have not only been able to do things similar to what I
have done so far, but also experience the field of linguistics
in many ways. While attending conferences and corresponding with
submitters, we are able to be in contact with prominent linguists
today. We would not be able to do such things without your
contributions and donations. I will one day leave LINGUIST with a
very rich legacy that will last my entire lifetime. Many other
students will come after me year after year who will benefit from
the same things I have. Please contribute today to allow all
LINGUIST students to continue to gain this outstanding education
and experience through their years as editors. Your help and
donations will be invaluable to all.

Donate today at https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm
and help LINGUIST support so many more students that will one day
give back to the linguistics community with their research and work
in the field.

Thank you,

Maria Moreno-Rollins
