organizations. The ICAL is a forum for the exchange of ideas among linguists,
applied linguists, sociolinguists, writers, scholars, and educators of languages.

non-verbal sign systems. Proposals addressing this or the following themes are
Multilingualism and multiculturalism

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

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any

that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
