The Cappadocian texts do not only document the Old Assyrian dialect of Akkadian, they also contain the earliest attested words in Anatolian languages. Many of these words were collected and discussed in the now largely outdated pioneering study of Emin Bilgiç (1954). Although their importance has long been recognized, specialists of ancient Anatolian languages make only limited use of this source. The main reason for this seems to be the want of an up-to-date study in which the available material is made accessible. This article is intended as a contribution to the study of loanwords in Old Assyrian. Not every word of Anatolian origin could be dealt with, and the discussion will be based on a small but representative set of known and new examples.
