Since I came here, I have been working with other crew members on Dissertation & Academic Papers, the web resources, and LL-Map. The LINGUIST List keeps a database of Dissertation Abstracts which allows you to read abstracts (often linked to a full text version online) from people who have successfully earned their Ph.D. The Dictionaries section of web resources has about 300 links to dictionaries of specific languages, multilingual dictionaries, acronym dictionaries, synonym and idiom dictionaries, as well as dictionaries of specialized terms. LL-MAP not only helps the user with dynamic search for language data, it also gives scholars the opportunity to utilize our site for the creation of their own language maps.
The idea of keeping the resources and services free and easy to access for scholars, students and all users is deeply held in LINGUIST List. However, we could not fully achieve these goals without your generous donation every year. Your support and donation has always been very significant to assist the many international graduate students like who have worked at LINGUIST List, both in our studies and our efforts of providing better services to the linguistic community. Even a small sum of money will be valuable to LINGUIST List and eventually all the users benefit from your generous donations. We need your help, please donate with just one click:

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.
