The Chicago Hittite Dictionary (CHD) is a project at the University of Chicago Oriental Institute to create a comprehensive dictionary of the Hittite language. The project was founded by Hans Gustav Güterbock and Harry Hoffner in 1975 and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.[1] It is currently co-edited by Hoffner and Theo van den Hout.[2] Hoffner originally hoped that the project could be completed by 2000,[3] though as of 2005 it was expected to last until 2045.[4] It is one of several dictionary projects at the Institute, including the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary and the Chicago Demotic Dictionary.
