I am interested in the syntax of natural languages, and in particular in functional categories such as person, tense and aspect.  Lately I've been working on evidentials, which express the speaker's source of evidence.  I'm a founding member of the board of trustees of the Navajo Language Academy, which gives summer workshops for Navajo bilingual teachers
