Proper noun[edit]

Lake Huron-Michigan

  1. One of the Great Lakes of North America. Hydrologically a single lake, its two basins are traditionally counted as separate lakes, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan.
    • 2002, Department of Environmental Quality, State of Michigan, “Great Lakes Map”:
      Lake Huron-Michigan, at 45,300 mi² / 117,400 km² is technically the world's largest freshwater lake. This is because what have traditionally been called Lake Huron and Lake Michigan are really giant lobes of a single lake connected by the five mile wide Strait of Mackinac.

Usage notes[edit]

Punctuation varies: Lake Huron - Michigan, Lake Huron–Michigan, Lake Huron-Michigan, Lake Huron/Michigan.
