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

It has a nominative marker /nɛ/, which is absent in other Rajasthani languages.[4]

Its word order is the typical subject–object–verb.[4] Its characteristic feature, unlike Hindi, is the presence or absence of agentive marker in perfect, depending on the nature of accusative marker.[4]
