Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Imagine for a moment that you are able to visually
represent language information in a virtual sphere.
Imagine also you are able to dynamically layer different
types of information over each other to query, search
and manipulate the data in order to see linguistic
patterns that you wouldn't have been able to see with
static paper maps alone. Imagine if you will the ability
to upload linguistic data via a user-friendly uploading
facility. No need to imagine any longer!

LL-MAP--a language mapping facility--is here!

And, I am happy to announce that with each month, LL-MAP gets more
inventive, more data-driven and more user-friendly.

And don't forget, it is your generous support that
keeps us going month after month:

I could continue to tell you about how you can use
LL-MAP and why it is an important resource, but now
I want to get personal. Since I joined the team three
years ago, I have seen a tremendous amount of work
put into the development and maintenance of LL-MAP.
I myself have gone from a team member who digitized
paper maps to someone who collected data herself
and created a map from that work. Now, I also assist
others in learning the programs and techniques to create
dynamic maps. I am surrounded by creative individuals
who are striving to make LL-MAP an even more useful
project. It is these things that make me proud to be a
team leader for LL-MAP. It is these things that make me
light up when I tell someone what I do for a living.
Come see more here of this great project here!

It is through your support that several graduate students
get to work on such a stimulating and important project
as LL-MAP. Also note that each contribution is going
towards more research and findings into the growing
field of geolinguistics. Please donate today:


Thank you for supporting LINGUIST List!
