  • Hittite (natively nešili "[in the language] of Neša"), also known as Nesite and Neshite, is the extinct language once spoken by the Hittites, an Indo-European-speaking people who created an empire centred on Hattusa in north-central Anatolia (modern-day Turkey). The language is attested in cuneiform, in records dating from the 16th (Anitta text) to the 13th century BC, with isolated Hittite loanwords and numerous personal names appearing in an Old Assyrian context from as early as the 20th century BC. Credit: Klasik Keyifler 2015 - Alla Corda- String Music through the Ages Just used Font Generator for the Cuneiform. Hence, not accurate.

    Correct me if Im wrong....but this sounds like it can be in the Iranian language family.

    The prayer itself is very relatable, and these sorts of texts, especially read aloud, really help me imagine these names in history books as real people, and remind us that as humans, we are more or less the same creatures we were three to four thousand years ago, and likely the same as we were ten thousand years ago.

    The narrator has a lovely voice. The dialogue would sound pleasing even if she was reading one's own execution sentence.

    It really sounds like a dead language, because I can't hear any references to spoken languages. It mostly sound like Indo Persian.

    Nešili language. How wonderful, the most ancient IE language we know and one of the most ancient languages of human history.
