The Linguistic Association of Nigeria (LAN) was founded in 1980 at its first annual conference which held at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The theme of the conference was: “The Linguistic Situation in Nigeria”. The main aim of the Association is to initiate, encourage and support scholarly research in virtually all aspects of Nigerian languages, linguistics, literature and cultures. LAN holds her conference annually, having gaps only, as follows: 1993-1994; 1996-2002, due mainly to logistic reasons. LAN plays active roles in matters concerning the teaching, learning and use of the indigenous Nigerian languages. LAN and its members have collaborated with a number of agencies on various projects relating to the development of Nigerian languages, such as orthography development, workshops for local language writers and teachers, metalanguage projects, curriculum development in local languages, dictionary projects, etc.
