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. This was largely a reaction against the narrowing of the field[1] following Noam Chomsky’s generative grammar theory. Its annual meetings are held at colleges and universities in both countries, from which volumes of proceedings are published under the title LACUS Forum.
