My name is Li Zheng. I came from Shanghai, China and have been
part of the LINGUIST team over past four years. I really appreciate
LINGUIST LIST giving me this job opportunity since the economy of
Michigan is very bad. Right now I can get a lot of great experiences
in various projects.
Please support the work our staff does by donating today:
As a programmer for LINGUIST, I am been involved in several projects,
focusing primarily on is the LEGO and LSA projects. For LEGO, we will
upload 17 lexicons and 300 wordlists into our system. Then the user
can search all the data in these lexicons and wordlists through our
search facility. For LSA, I developed a multivariate search facility
for the Linguistic Society of America, so that the LSA staff can search
any data in any LSA table. This will help them to save a lot of time
to get the information they want. Also I help to maintain all Publication,
Job, Call/Conf and Easyabs pages for the web site.
LINGUIST is non-profit organization; it provides free services for
the linguistic community. However, without your donation we can not
maintain our free service. Your contribution will help us to continue
working another year and provide more services for linguists.
Please help us to donate at:
Thanks again for your continued support and donations,

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!
