Abstract

Hittite grammar has been of great interest to comparative linguistics ever since it was deciphered by Bedřich Hrozný in 1915 and published in 1917 as Die Sprache der Hethiter (SH). Here we find the first description of the Hittite nominal system. In this article, I focus on the spatial cases as described by Hrozný and as they are understood today. In Part 1, I present the background of Hrozný’s research. In part 2, spatial cases and their internal structure are outlined. In Part 3, I discuss the Hittite spatial cases as described in SH and as understood by contemporary researchers, with a focus on the basis for possible misunderstandings. Part 4 provides an overview of later research regarding the nominal system, and especially the spatial cases. The conclusion summarizes the comparison of Die Sprache der Hethiter and contemporary research.
