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

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

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