Hello, my name is Jay Williams.  I have a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque with a focus in Diné (Navajo).  I recently was a lecturer at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.  

My dissertation is An Intermediate Grammar of Navajo: A Guide for Bilingual Educators.  It's a text mainly describing verb conjugation patterns for teachers without a linguistics background.

My thesis focused on metaphor and metonymy in Navajo onomastics (placenaming practices).
