Message 2: One of the Most Exciting Choices I Ever Made in My Life
Date: 25-Mar-2009
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: One of the Most Exciting Choices I Ever Made in My Life
E-mail this message to a friend

Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Coming to Eastern Michigan University as a Linguistics M.A
student was one of the most exciting choices I ever made in
my life. It was my dream to study at a Liberal Arts College
in USA. My first focus has been philosophy and literature
at Hartwick College, N.Y. Linguistics is a different field
altogether -- its scope is magnificent, but more than that it
has provided a poet like myself the chance towards a professional
life, and also getting a paycheck for an effort that I love
to make.

Eastern Michigan University is the only University that I
know of which offers such a job opportunity for Graduate
students. Here at LINGUIST List, we are required to work on
specific Language projects like LL-Map and the World Tree
Project. This gives us the chance to work with 'real data'
from our field, and participate in making it accessible to
you. These projects host intensive linguistic data, covering
language families from across the world. All this information
is at your fingertips, provided by LINGUIST List. We count
on your donations towards these ventures, so graduate students
like me can continue working here.

I've only been here for over a month but speaking from
this short stay, I am thrilled at the possibilities at LL.
There is a wide range of activities that are covered, and I
got a general training but more specific ones in LL-Map and
Job Posting. I am currently a member of the Staging Team for
LL-Map, and have also participated in the maintenance of the
Fund-Drive Pages. I'm acquiring the experience of working in
an office environment, with Linguists from across the world
- we have Polish, Swedish, Chinese, Indonesian, German, American
and Pakistani (that's me!) students working together, and
making this site possible for all of you.

All this hub of activity would not exist, if it were not for
your continued economic contribution. Please do support our
education and work experience at Linguist List,


Thank you,

Fatima Ijaz

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.
