Voices from LSA 2012

At January’s LSA meeting, we invited visitors to our office hours to record vlogs (an adorable portmanteau of video + blog, for those new to the term) describing what they like about LINGUIST List.  Several folks were kind enough to sit down and record some video testimonials.  A few choice quotes:

“I just want to give a shout out to LINGUIST List for all they’ve done to help facilitate linguistic communication within the field.”  -Gary Holton, Alaska Native Language Center

“It’s really useful as a discipline to have a clearinghouse of all this information.  A lot of other disciplines don’t have that… I’m really glad LINGUIST List exists.”  -Stephanie Morse, University of California, Santa Barbara

“Do you want to find out what people are talking about in linguistics?  You can go to LINGUIST List. It’s a great resource.  It’s made a huge difference for me.”  -Marianna Di Paolo, Center for American Indian Languages

“I look at LINGUIST List every single day.  It’s my link to the world of linguistics.” -Julia James, Independent Researcher 

We’d love to hear from other users! Send us your videos with accolades, suggestions, or general comments about LINGUIST, and we’ll feature them on the blog and Facebook!
