    Hattic was a non-Indo-European agglutinative language spoken by the Hattians in Asia Minor in the 2nd millennium BC. Scholars call the language "Hattic" to distinguish it from Hittite, the Indo-European language of the Hittite Empire.

Verbs contained a string of prefixes with fixed order, expressing different grammatical relations. The verbal roots were predominantly monosyllabic or disyllabic. The verbal forms could express at least two grammatical persons by means of personal prefixes.
