Dear Subscribers, 

I've been a programmer at the LINGUIST for a year now and have
really enjoyed my time here working with our crew of knowledgeable
linguistics students. As a humble code monkey looking for work
more stimulating than your average dot-com store front, the
LINGUIST List has provided some remarkably interesting projects
to work on as well as a group of highly intelligent and curious
individuals as guides for my venture into the fascinating world
of linguistics.

I'm currently working on an amazingly ambitious project with my
fellow LINGUIST team members called LEGO (Lexicon Enhancement
via the GOLD Ontology). The goal of this project is to transform
discreet lexical data sets into a uniformly marked up RDF graph.
This project is exciting to me due to its parallel design goals
with the perceived evolution of how information should be shared
through the internet. We're using advanced technologies which
allow an interoperatable exchange of data with documents marked
up in RDF. We are also imbuing our data with a common linguistic
ontology by referencing GOLD (General Ontology for Linguistic
Description) so that it can be accessed and related to by others
who adhere to the same terminology. I believe that this project
symbolizes The LINGUIST List's endeavor in exploring methods for
sharing linguistic data as well as providing a model for other
organizations to share their data in a highly accessible manner.

The LINGUIST List is a unique organization in the way that it
selflessly contributes an enormous amount of data and services
to the linguistic community as well as the greater world of
academia. Though we are ecstatically fueled by your appreciation
for our services, we can not achieve our ambitious goals, nor
employ our nutritionally deprived grad-students, without
contributions through our annual fund drive. Please consider
donating today at

Thank you for your support,

Dwight VanTuyl

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.

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

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!
