Afro-Asiatic Meeting 2014

Over the years the Italian Afro-Asiatic Meetings offer the possibility of a fruitful confrontation around the wide linguistic groups of languages that span over two continents, Africa and Asia, and along a period of time from the third Millennium BC to our days. Born as Camito-Semitic Meeting, it has progressively increased its international attractiveness, being one of the very few occasions to promote discussion and debate on the synchronic, diachronic or comparative analysis of languages belonging to the Afro-Asiatic linguistic family (Berber, Chadic, Cushitic, Egyptian, Omotic, and Semitic).

This edition will be the first to take place at the Sapienza University in Rome. This year we are also promoting a Special Focus Session on the South Semitic linguistic group, which will be an occasion to analyze the current state of scholarship and some new issues involving South Arabian languages (Ancient and Modern), as well as Semitic Ethiopian languages.
