The papers in this volume derive from the Third Hamito-Semitic Congress, which took place in London in 1978. The papers, loosely grouped according to language families and theoretical issues, are in a number of cases considerably expanded and updated version of those presented at the conference. The papers in the earlier part of the volume tend to be more substantive and to present primary evidence, the subsequent ones focus more on specific issues within particular languages, are surveys of the field, or deal with questions of methodology. Together they provide an overview of the current state of affairs in the subject.
