Dear Subscribers, 

We have the pleasure to bring to you a fascinating

story from our latest Linguist of the Day:

Aleksandr Evgen'evich Kibrik

Moscow State University

He starts his story as follows:

"When I was young, I never thought about linguistics.

I wanted to be a film producer - that was my major

ambition. My parents were artists, art had surrounded

me from birth. But I had no talent for drawing, which

my father was glad about. He always said that the only

people who should become artists are those who are just

unable not to be artists. Otherwise, it's just a hard

and unsatisfying life."

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!
