Harauti (Hadoti) is a Rajasthani language, spoken by approximately four million people in the Hadoti region of southwestern Rajasthan and neighbouring areas in Madhya Pradesh.

It has a nominative marker /nɛ/, which is absent in other Rajasthani languages.

Its word order is the typical subject–object–verb. Its characteristic feature, unlike Hindi, is the presence or absence of agentive marker in perfect, depending on the nature of accusative marker.
