I came to The LINGUIST List as a bright-eyed classicist straight out of undergrad. With an arsenal of Latin conjugations and Greek declensions and a fascination for language, I aimed to infiltrate the world of linguistics in graduate school. Well, my fascination and enthusiasm were certainly laudable, but to think that I was prepared to tackle the intricacies of X-bar and lambda calculus armed with aorist tense paradigms was laughable.
But, luckily, I have The LINGUIST List, an excellent online resource at my fingertips to help out whenever I have questions that need answering. And so do you! Please donate today to keep the site and listserv alive:
As a student worker at The LINGUIST List, I get daily hands-on experience with the world of linguistics, creating tools and providing a service for people like you. Among other opportunities, I help edit submissions to the LINGUIST List Notice Board, which is designed to help you find resources for personal linguistic research. You can check out or submit to our Notice Board by visiting:
The LINGUIST List has provided me with the resources I need to not just study in linguistics but to thrive in it. And these resources aren't just available to me, but to all of you as well! So please help show your support for a group that is dedicated to supporting the pool of linguistic knowledge - even those who have just waded in - by donating today:

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.
