Burgenland Croatian is spoken in four countries to the north of Croatia by the descendants of migrants who fled in the 16th and 17th centuries due to the Ottoman invasions on the Balkans. Burgenland Croatian is interesting for historical linguists, among other reasons because it can help reconstruct the dialect picture of BCMS as it was before it was dramatically changed by mass migrations. It also has its own literary tradition. The number of speakers of Burgenland Croatian is decreasing rapidly.

Summary

This article offers a description of a local dialect that belongs to a subarea of Burgenland Croatian (the eastern part of the Haci group of dialects) that has hitherto received little attention. It consists of (a) an analysis of the phonology and phonetics of the dialect, with special attention for the history of the vowel system and the accentuation, (b) remarks on morphology and (c) a number of miscellaneous data that fill in the information missing from the dialectological maps in the standard work on Burgenland Croatian, viz. Neweklowsky (1978). The conclusion contains a list of the most striking characteristics of the dialect.
