Dear Subscribers, 

Today we are presenting you with a new Linguist
of the day: Bernd Heine.

He is sharing his story on how he became a linguist
from his early days. This story, like the previous
ones we have featured, will inspire you. You may find
similarities to your own story.

Professor Heine wrote:
"Linguistics was never something I really felt
attached to when I was young. Latin declensions
and conjugations belong to the most boring
experiences of my school time, and the secondary
school English classes in my home town Leverkusen,
West Germany."

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!
