A group of dead languages, including Hittite. Although generally considered to be an Indo-European family on par with other subfamilies such as Celtic or Germanic, some scholars contend that the Anatolian languages and all the Indo-European languages are descended conjointly from a common ancestor, so the whole group should be called the "Indo-Hittite" family.
