It is hard to believe that LINGUIST has been part of my
life for something like 20 years! I don't think I was one
of the original 78 subscribers, but I know I was there
early, excited by the potential of this new mode of
professional communication. During the early years when
LINGUIST stood alone as the forum for discussions on
theory, data, professional development, and everything
else we could think of, I participated and profited from
interaction of a kind we had not even thought of earlier.
Of course the list has evolved and discussions of theory and
data have largely moved to more specialized lists.
But I still count on LinguistList for conference calls
for papers and programs, queries (and the generous answers
from around the world), new books and dissertations. And
the entire LINGUIST site has an amazing array of linguistic
resources for all of us, however long we've been in the field.
Because I think so highly of these contributions to the
entire discipline of Linguistics, I feel honored to be
an Advisor. Working with Helen, Anthony, the LINGUIST
crew, and my fellow Advisors is a pleasure, and helping
with decision-making makes me feel that I am giving back
to an organization that has contributed so much to all of
us. Who doesn't like being asked for opinions? As the
next paragraph will remind everyone as well, I am also a
shameless letter-writer for the annual fund drive and
look forward to continuing that role this year too.
And I can continue right here: there is as obvious way
for everyone, not just the Advisors, to show gratitude
for LINGUIST, not just for the discussion listserv, but
for the many resources and services that have been added
over the years. LINGUIST needs your donations, large and
small, to keep running.
Now is the time to support this mainsay of Linguistics
Thank you to the LINGUIST crew for making me one of the
spokespersons for the Advisors this year.
And thank you to everyone for donating to LINGUIST!

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!
