Abstract.A new form of contra-precontinuity, which we call weak almost contra-precontinuity, is introduced. We show that this class of functions is weaker than most forms of precontinuity and contra-precontinuity, but that the class still has interesting properties. Conditions are established under which the weakly almost contra-precontinuous image of a space is nearly compact. Finally, properties related to the graphs of these functions and other basic properties of weakly almost contra-precontinuous functions are investigated.
