Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Hello, my name is Kristen Dunkinson. I began working at
LINGUIST List during the summer but in my short time here
I feel that I have learned much. I currently work on the
Endangered Languages Catalog (ELCat) project which has helped
me to refine my research skills and has given me a better
understanding of how project planning and project management
are handled. I am also an editor for the job announcement posts
on the LINGUIST List.

In my time working with our subscribers I have seen exactly how
important the services we provide are to the linguistics
community. Not only do our editorial posts offer a wealth
of knowledge on various topics but our research projects
create helpful tools that anyone can use. From creating
language maps with LL-MAP (http://www.llmap.org/),
to learning about best practices with EMELD
(http://emeld.org/index.cfm), LINGUIST List has a lot to offer.

Please support LINGUIST today:

The LINGUIST List provides the linguistics community around
the world with vital information and tools as well as providing
a wonderful learning environment for students. Students come
out of the LINGUIST List prepared to be productive members in
their field and ready for the next phase of their lives.

For all of these reasons I would ask that you please donate today:

Your donations make it possible for us to maintain the amount
of valuable information we host and distribute and allow us to
fund student involvement.

Every donation counts, even $5 or $10 helps make the work that
we do possible. No matter the amount your donation is a vital
part of what makes LINGUIST List great.

Best regards,

Kristen L. Dunkinson
LINGUIST List Jobs Editor
