Linguistic Association of Canada and the United States
The Linguistic Association of Canada and the United States (LACUS) was founded in August 1974 by a group of linguists of the Great Lakes Region. A large part of the motivation for the founding of LACUS was the reaction of many linguists against the narrowing of the field following Noam Chomsky’s Generative grammar. The annual meetings of LACUS have been held at a variety of colleges and universities, in both Canada and the United States. From these annual conferences, a volume of selected papers is published under the title LACUS Forum.
