Dear Linguists,

I have joined the LINGUIST team two years ago. I came from
Shanghai, China ten years ago and studied in M.S. of Computer
Information System in EM. The economy of U.S is really bad,
especially for Michigan, so I appreciate so much for LINGUIST
to give me this job opportunity, so I can buy food and raise
my kid.

As a full time programmer for LINGUIST, I am been involved in
different projects. This year the new project I am involved in
is the FIELD project. This project is a web based tool for field
linguists to insert their language data into a fully searchable
online database. Another project is the conference customization
facility, EasyAbs, which is designed for small conferences to
submit abstracts on line and let reviews review the abstracts.
The facility has already gone live and totally free for any user.
Right now we are developing version 2 of this facility after
receiving user's feed back.

LINGUIST is non-profit organization. It provides free service for
all linguist users in the world. However, without your donation
we can not keep running our free service. Your donations will
mean a lot for us. Your contribution will help us to continually
run another year to provide more service for linguist users and
give us the chance to work here. Please donate today:


Thanks again, for your continued support and donations,

Yours sincerely,
Li (Lily) Zheng

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 
2009 LINGUIST List Restaurant and join us for a delightful treat!

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to

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!
