Today we are featuring Sarah Thomason as the latest chef de 
Cuisine of the Day! Go on and sneak peak a bit of her story
on how she got into linguistics:

"I never had any childhood yearnings toward linguistics,
though my friend Molly Mason and I did invent an excellent
secret language when we were about 11. No, my yearning was
to be a zoologist. But after my one high-school chemistry
course, taught by a dreadful person, I swore never to take
another one; and a zero-chemistry pledge is a serious
hindrance to a career in biology. So in spite of several
wonderful college biology courses -- Paul Ehrlich's course
in evolution was one of my greatest educational experiences
-- I had to find another major. I'd studied French and Latin
in high school and German and Russian and Ancient Greek in
college, and languages were easy for me; I chose a German
major because it'd leave me lots of free time for courses
in things like comparative vertebrate anatomy, plant ecology,
and invertebrate paleontology ..."

site to read more about S. Thomason's story.

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!
