Of the several languages recorded by Hittite scribes in the cuneiform script, the Hattian language remains a particular conundrum for philologists and linguists alike. Although a century of research has produced numerous articles as well as monographs devoted to the lexicography, grammar, syntax and origins of this isolated language, our understanding of Hattian remains quite modest.
Immediately following the publication of several Hattian texts, Emil Forrer made the first contributions to Hattian research in the 1920s. The subsequent decades saw no further serious efforts to interpret this isolated Anatolian language. Fortunately, an interruption of this magnitude has not occurred since the 1960s, when a few Hittitologists and scholars of the ancient Near East began consistently devoting their attention to the research of Hattian in various degrees of intensity.
