The elementary textbook is an introduction to the Hittite language and writing system for self instruction and for begining students, especially students who cannot work easily with the existing German grammars but who wants a more up-to-date source.

Beginning Hittite contains a grammar, reader, glossary and cuneiform sign list. The grammar is descriptive, not historical, although features of Old Hittite which differ significantly from the younger language are noted. Copious examples are provided, especially in the syntax section. The selections for reading include portions of the Apology of Hattusilis, the treaty with Aleksandus, the Hittite Laws, and the letter of king Tut's widow of Suppiluliumas. Each is presented in cuneiform with interlinear transliteration and verbatim translation.
