Featured Staff: Meet Nils Hjortnaes

Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

Nils Hjortnaes, LINGUIST List programmer

My name is Nils Hjortnaes and I’m a web developer here at LINGUIST List. I’m currently working on the new website fixing any issues that may come up, making it as user friendly as possible, and getting everything running smoothly and cleanly with all the functionality of our old website. If you’re curious how much progress we’ve made, you can check the new site out here.

I am currently an M.A. student in Computational Linguistics here at Indiana University, and I am extremely fortunate to have a job at Linguist List which can support me while I continue down this road to finish my Master’s and into a PhD. It is an honor to be able to support the community through such an important resource as the LINGUIST List.

When I first started my graduate program here, I thought the LINGUIST List was just a site to find jobs and conferences. I have since learned that it does so much more, hosting blogs, forums, various resources, and bringing the linguistic community together, among other things. All of this, including updating the website to be easier, faster, and more friendly to use, is only possible through your donations.

Through your support, we are able to continue hosting and providing so many resources to the linguistic community, as well as support students such as myself who are the backbone of maintaining, improving, and running these valuable resources. We therefore ask that you consider supporting us and the entire community by donating to our fund drive.

From all of us here at the LINGUIST List, thank you very much!

Best,
Nils Hjortnaes
Web Developer
