Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation
This summer, the University of Oregon is hosting the second Institute on Field
Linguistics and Language Documentation (InField 2010). InField 2010 is an
excellent opportunity to learn/update the technical skills necessary to do
successful modern language documentation, maintenance, and revitalization.
InField will consist of two weeks of workshops (June 21 - July 2) with the
option of an additional week for lab practice (July 5-9) or an additional four
weeks of training in field methods (July 5 - 30).
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

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!
