Dear Subscribers,

As in previous years, we are featuring linguists that have
influenced the LINGUIST crew members as the Chefs de Cuisine
of the Day. This is a feature that was very popular in the past
and we are proud of being able to tell our readership about it.

This year we have six exceptional and very interesting linguists
telling us how they got involved in linguistics and what were
the different paths that they took to be where they are today.
They stories are captivating we have no doubt that you will
enjoy them as much as we do.

The Chefs de Cuisine of the Day are featured at:
http://linguistlist.org/fund-drive/2009/linguist-of-the-day/ .

At different times during our Fund Drive you will be able to
read about Brian D. Joseph's junior year abroad program in
Greece and Sarah Thomason's childhood desire to be a zoologist,
and what she asked different grad school departments when
applying.

You will find out that Richard Hudson had a childhood concern
with the idea that there might be other languages out there
that he had not thought about in his monolingual upbringing
and that he found out that he didn't have the brain for actually
learning Egyptian; but did have the brain for enjoying etymology.


You will discover the two things that have shaped Marianne
Mithun's the most as a linguist,and how she was shocked as a
student to learn that someone would pay you to think about
linguistics (when reading grad fellowship ads).


Andrew Carnie describes the feeling of being more Scottish than
the Scots while growing up in Canada and explains what convinced
him that the life of the linguist was a glorious one.

Lastly, find out which book Robert Lew paid the equivalent to
about half the average monthly salary in Poland cause he simply
had to have it!

Message 2: Brian Joseph Loved Latin Immediately and Soaked it Up

Today we are featuring Brian D. Joseph, our first Chef 
de Cuisine of the Day! Go on and sneak peak a bit of his
story on how he got into linguistics:

"My path to being a linguist began, as is the case with many
colleagues in this field, with an interest in language, and
in my case, with one language in particular: Latin. I started
studying Latin in my junior year in high school (fall of 1967),
taking it at the recommendation of my uncle, Morton Bloomfield,
who was himself a linguist -- a medievalist and specialist in
the history of English (he taught at Harvard and was no relation
to Leonard Bloomfield, as best anyone could tell). I loved
Latin immediately and soaked it up, reveling in the declensional
and conjugational regularities, admiring the structure, and
thoroughly enjoying the whole experience (in contrast to many
of my classmates, for whom high school Latin was torture!) ..."

Go to the Chef de Cuisine of the Day part of the Fund Drive
site to read more about Brian Joseph's story.

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

your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills

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