Hittite LV duddushiyalla- is an adaptation of Hattic UJduddushiyal-, as shown by the geminate -//-, which does not appear in true Hattic loanwords. 12 Tischler (1998 678) suggests that a number of Hittite titles may be caiques on Hattic.

Hoffher). The relationship between Hatti and Luwiya may have had its origins in a period prior to the emergence of the Hittite Old Kingdom. It is tempting to assume that a common ethnic background played some part in this, particularly if the dispersion of the Indo-European groups who came to Anatolia occurred after their arrival. And indeed the linguistic affinities between Nesite and Luwian seem too close to allow the possibility that the speakers of these languages entered Anatolia in independent waves some centuries apart.

13 Turning to the lexicon, we may begin by dispelling the persistent myth that Hittite has replaced much of its inherited Indo-European vocabulary. Hittite core vocabulary remains Indo-European: see the detailed analysis of Tischler (1979) with references and the cogent remarks of Neumann (2001 49). There is no doubt that the Hittites took over the names for some flora and fauna of Anatolia from other languages—we have no assurance, however, that Hattic was the only such source. The dominant role of Hattic elements in Old Hittite religion and cult and ideology of kingship is undeniable, and we would expect to find reflexes of this in the associated terminology.
