Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

As a second year master's student in linguistics at Eastern Michigan
University, I know that I am only here because of generous donations
that you have made in the past. Please consider donating again so that
students such as myself can continue to pursue their studies while
offering the latest resources in linguistics:


I began at LINGUIST as an intern in May 2009, thinking that I would
only be in Ypsilanti, Michigan for 3 to 4 months and yet here I am in
2011 as a graduate student supported by the LINGUIST community. I never
foresaw that I would stay at Eastern Michigan University as a graduate
student, work on LINGUIST projects such as MultiTree, attend and organize
linguistics workshops and conferences, and correspond with linguists from
all over the world. The opportunities that we receive here will help us
go on to make contributions in our field and beyond.

I am the Queries and Summaries editor, two areas which I believe
exemplify the community that we have on The LINGUIST List. Queries
is an incredible area where readers can help cultivate new avenues of
research by sharing the knowledge and insight they possess. Not only
does this information benefit the Query submitters, but the suggestions,
resources, and advice provided are also given back to the rest of
the community through our Summary submissions.

I'm always thrilled to see subscribers responding to Query submissions
and when a Summary is submitted. I genuinely believe this is something
special and that you are not likely to see this sort of community
involvement elsewhere.

If you donate today, you will ensure that such services for the community
will continue, as well as support the work of students like myself. I
greatly appreciate any donations that ensure more students will have the
same opportunities that I had these last two years:


Thank you so much for your generosity!

Danielle St. Jean
Queries and Summaries Editor

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out Fund 
Drive 2011 site!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form at  

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later. To do so, go to: 

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to 
donate by check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit: 

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!
