Dear Subscribers,

I came to The LINGUIST List in 2006, eager to begin graduate
studies and gain experience working in linguistics. My experience
has been far from disappointing! LINGUIST has supported my studies
throughout my time in the graduate program at Eastern Michigan
University and continues to provide professional experience that
cannot be matched elsewhere. Our office receives the latest updates
in the field, and the daily interaction with the students and
faculty in the office has made me feel at home in the program.

I edit book announcements and correspond with publishers to make
sure that LINGUIST announces the latest materials relevant to the
field. I've always enjoyed reading the summaries of these publications,
especially those which pertain to my favorite topics. LINGUIST has
also expanded my knowledge to include valuable skills in writing HTML,
editing text, and working with language maps. I count myself lucky
to experience this type of education. I know that LINGUIST serves an
important role in the discipline, and it also benefits the student
staff that keeps it running. Please donate to help keep LINGUIST
operational:

Best regards,

Dear Subscribers,

The Publications Area is a large and popular part
of LINGUIST. We post announcements about the

of journals, academic papers, and publishers that
accept linguistics materials. Additionally, we work
closely with the Reviews Team, which posts subscriber
reviews of books that have been announced on our listserv.
In 2009, we posted information about more than:

- 950 books
- 120 book reviews
- 300 journal tables of contents
- 120 journal calls for papers
- 180 dissertations

Our database, which you can search by language,
linguistic subfield, and more, now includes a total
of about:

- 7660 books
- 2320 book reviews
- 2220 journal tables of contents
- 1860 dissertation abstracts
- 3000 academic paper abstracts

Also, if you are looking for information about linguistics
journals or publishers that publish linguistics titles, our
database contains entries for approximately:

- 560 journals
- 130 publishers

To browse or search through any of the features mentioned
here, visit the Publications Index at:
http://linguistlist.org/pubs/index.html

Please feel free to take advantage of other special pages,
such as Cambridge Extra, which features access to selected
journal articles, fun competitions, and other special offers

Additionally, the Wiley-Blackwell Language & Linguistics
Compass Discussion Forum allows you to read the full text
of selected articles and post comments about them directly

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help

Drive 2010 and join us for a great journey!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

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!
