I am a semanticist with interests in the distinction between individual- and stage-level predicates, negative polarity items, generic sentences, definite and indefinite descriptions, and all things having to do with Navajo syntax and semantics.
This semester I am teaching
Semantics (Ling40) and Research Seminar/Senior Honors Thesis (Ling 100/195)
In Spring 2008 I will be teaching a first year seminar on American Indian
Languages (Ling 4) along with Semantics (Ling 40).

I am fortunate to teach in the summer workshops run by the Navajo
Language Academy. Linguists, language teachers, and students
join together for three weeks of classes and collaborative
research every summer at a location on or near the Navajo reservation.
Information about this year's workshop is available here.
