Message 1: Editor Maria Moreno-Rollins on working at LINGUIST
Date: 22-Mar-2006
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: Editor Maria Moreno-Rollins on working at LINGUIST


Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers, 

I am one of the members of the LINGUIST List crew. I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I grew up there and moved to Ann Arbor, MI, a few years ago as a transfer student. I graduated
this past year from EMU with a B.A. in Linguistics, and if it weren't for LINGUIST, I would
probably be trying to find a way to go through grad school.

I was more than happy to join the LINGUIST crew two years ago. I am now in the second semester
of my Master's program, looking forward to finding which part of linguistics interests me the
most (maybe Psycholinguistics?).

Among some of the things I do, I correspond with very interesting people in linguistics,
posting the newest TOCs in the discipline, and learning more than I ever thought possible
in areas not only relevant to linguistics, but also to other fields such as English, publications
and computer science.

One of the most interesting and challenging things about working for LINGUIST is that there
are many ways in which you see linguistics applied. Before I joined The LINGUIST List, I knew
just enough computer skills to get by and do basic things for school and leisure. Now,
because of my work here at LINGUIST, I actually have some idea what XML, ColdFusion, or
database structure are. Although I'm still in the process of acquiring all there is to know
about ColdFusion and programming, I'm learning more about computers and programming each day
with the challenging and exciting work necessary to make LINGUIST work for everyone.

I am part of the Publications Team, which means that I work with publishers to ensure that
their books, journals, and TOCs are announced quickly and correctly. This involves looking
for misspelled words and other editing tasks before sending out an announcement, but also,
carefully classifying each submission according to sub-fields and subject language, and
maintaining dozens of pages of code.

Another plus of working for LINGUIST is that there is a nice and diverse group of very
talented graduate students from many different places in the world (just like me!). Everyone
is very dedicated and responsible and manage to do a huge amount of work during the time
they are here. It is surprising to me to see the amount and quality of work that everyone
at LINGUIST does, especially with a budget that does not allow for too many fancy equipment
and training. And we all enjoy and love working for LINGUIST for what it has to offer to each
one of us and to the linguistic community even though it can be stressful and tough at time,
but always rewarding.

I would like to thank you all those who have contributed to the LINGUIST in the past and
again now for you are part of the reason why many of us have this amazing chance to be part
of an outstanding group and learn so much. If you have not donated yet, I would like you
to consider doing so as it will be a way of having LINGUIST working the way it has, improve
as much as possible, and aid the funding of another grad student's education!

Thank you for your support! And go visit Buenos Aires if you ever desire to go to an
amazing place!

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. 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 our Fund Drive 2006 
LINGUIST List Cruise for some Fund Drive fun!

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

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

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

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

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

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!
