We are announcing the new Linguist of the day: Andrej Malchukov
His story starts like this:
"Into the linguistic career I have been partly prompted by my parents, who are
philologists but not linguists. At home we had a good library so I started getting
interested in humanities and was fortunate to read many great writers and
philosophers while still studying at primary school. As far as I recall, Icelandic
sagas, Plato, Bernard Shaw, and Evelyn Waugh were my favorites at different times.
(Reading Plato's dialogues impressed me to the extent that I tried out this type
of discourse on my parents, which should be pretty irritating I guess). At the
Leningrad/St. Petersburg University I majored in Germanic (Scandinavian) languages,
but the education in 1980-s was broadly philologically oriented, with a focus on
learning languages and literature rather than linguistics."

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!
