LINGUIST: A Stepping-Stone for Students

Dear LINGUIST LIST Subscribers,

My name is Danuta Allen and I am an undergraduate student of Linguistics at Eastern Michigan University. I have only begun working for the LINGUIST List, and I am truly grateful for being offered this experience. I am very excited to learn every day something new and valuable about the projects the LL Staff and Volunteers have been developing and maintaining here, that I would never otherwise learn about by merely taking my linguistics courses at EMU. I love my major and consider working for the LINGUIST List to be a wonderful and significant stepping-stone for my future career as a linguist. Without your financial support, students like me would not be given this amazing opportunity.

The LINGUIST List plays an important role for the linguistic community as it continues to support several graduate students through their higher education, allowing them to pursue a degree in linguistics. Without your donations, it would not be possible. Please, remember the long-term contributions the LINGUIST List makes to the field of linguistics through the training it offers to the students. The linguistic disciplines will someday benefit from the knowledge and experience students will offer as full-fledged professional linguists.

Please, consider donating to the LINGUIST List. Make it your opportunity to contribute to the field of linguistics by supporting future linguists like me in gaining such valuable professional experience. This is an opportunity that only becomes available once a year, so don’t miss it! You can donate via this link:

Sincerely,
Danuta Allen
