Dear Subscribers,

As I enter my fourth year at the LINGUIST List, I look
back on the history of letters that I've written you. I've
shared the story of how I became interested in languages
in high school, and pursued that interest in college. I
also told you how, with some luck, I found my way to The
LINGUIST List's non-for-profit publication, staying afloat
through donations made by readers like you:


While it may have been luck that landed me at The LINGUIST
List, it is undoubtedly the efforts of readers like you that
has kept me here. Without you donating your hard-earned cash,
we wouldn't be able to provide the services you've come to

'Services?' you ask.

Why, yes! If you're in linguistics and you're looking for books,
reviews, conferences, or a job, The LINGUIST List is probably
your first stop, whether by visiting our website, reading your
email, checking an RSS feed, or even just dropping by one of
our Twitter profiles. And I am one of the graduate students who
power this place.

As linguists, we do everything we can to bring as much useful
information as possible to the linguistics community - but we
need YOUR help to continue to do that.

The good news though, is
that it is easy to help out!

Simply clicking this link:


will take you to the donate page. There you can do your part
to ensure that we continue to fill your inbox with everything
you need to be a linguist in the 21st century.

Even if you can only send $25 or $50 our way, you will be helping
us out in a BIG way. You contribution helps support another year
of The LINGUIST List publishing more of the linguistics
information you need.

Won't you help us out?

Dear Subscribers,

---Your donations are revolutionizing linguistic mapping---

Linguistic data are like ingredients for a meal. It's all
about how you
put it together.

Quite often, linguistic data is still served raw in figures
and sentences. As we learn more and more about the technical
tools at our disposal, we learn how to spice it up with graphs
and illuminating tables - and nowadays, some of it can move in
animated graphs, audio-clips and movies.

While a paper map of language distribution is infinitely more
delectable than written geographical directions, it's still
a bit stale. That's why Stockholm University and LINGUIST List
got together in the LLMAP project a few years ago, to create a
new standard for linguistic mapping - interactive maps that
could be overlayed on top of each other and filled with as much
information as we could put in there - editable by researchers
to produce just the kind of map they needed at any given moment.

I've been team leader, together with Hunter Lockwood, for the
LINGUIST List branch of LLMAP for half a year now, and we are
constantly struck by the revolution in linguistic mapping we
see before us, and the interest the LLMAP project evokes in
field linguists we talk to. Soon, the editing facility will be
up, and anyone will be able to edit any map in our steadily
growing database of geospatial information.

I want to thank you for your generous support to LINGUIST List
in the past, that has made it possible for us to build this tool
for the research community.

And we really need your donations this year as well, in order
to keep going. And while you're thinking about how much to
donate, why don't you step in and have a look at LLMAP:


And check out, for instance, how our global climate and
geographical terrain maps interact with the distribution of
different languages - or how different theories of the language
distribution in Mexico matches up. Or something else that catches
your fancy.

And that's just the appetizer...

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. 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 Space Fund 
Drive 2010 and join us for a great journey!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to: 

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to 
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit: 

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!
