whose greatest aim is to contribute to the discipline.
Please donate today to help fund students as they build and maintain
the services of The LINGUIST List:
From my very first day, I have been a member of the LL-MAP team, and
now have the pleasure of serving as one of the two team leaders. I
have spent a lot of time mapping languages and families in Africa and
North America, and I have learned so much from this project that it is
difficult to summarize! It has exposed me to languages and peoples,

Along with working on the LL-MAP team, I am one of the editors of the
Jobs submissions on the LINGUIST List. This service allows companies
and universities to advertise positions they are looking to fill through

Here at LINGUIST, we rely on donations from subscribers to fund students.
Your donations allow us to keep working and develop new tools for the

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!
