I would concur with Don Killian's plea for more sharing of linguistics
information. At the same time, I would point out that much is already
available. Perhaps others can point to sources of information they are
aware of. On my part, I will mention that SIL International is increasingly
putting more basic descriptions online from various areas of the world,
with especially rich resources already posted for Mexico, Cameroon, and
Papua New Guinea, but also from Brazil, Burkina Faso, Colombia, Peru,
Suriname, and the Philippines. These have been produced over a period of
several decades and include various degrees of depth and sophistication, of
course. See http://www.sil.org/worldwide.html.

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!
