In this article the Akkadian dialect of Hatti is studied, as it is manifested in the Akkadian texts unearthed at Ugarit (at present Ras Shamra) since 1929. This study focuses on the phonology and orthography of the Hatti dialect. Comparative studies on the Akkadian of peripheral areas such as Hatti are currently very topical. For this reason a schematic summary of the most important findings is given at the end of the study. From this it is clear that the Akkadian of Hatti indeed shows similarities with the Akkadian dialects of six other peripheral areas, but also that the Hatti dialect in some instances has a unique form.
