Sažetak
A Croatian dialect has been spoken for about 500 years in three villages of the Italian province of Molise, since an emigration from the hinterland of central Dalmatia. Throughout a long period of isolation from other Croatian dialects, in contact with Italian and Molisian dialects, this dialect has changed in many ways, adapting lexical, phonological and morphological features of the languages with which it is in contact. It differs considerably both from the Standard Croatian and the current vernaculars of its ancient homeland representing a challenge for scholars interested in the study of contact-induced linguistic changes and the historical development of Croatian dialects. Spoken today by about 2000-2500 speakers this archaic dialect has been seriously threatened to disappear due to a high rate economic emigration. However, in spite of, until recently, complete lack of institutional support, the language shows a remarkable vitality as the majority of natives of these villages still speak it on a daily basis, transmit it to their children (using Italian for communication with outsiders), and many emigrants continue to speak their language after leaving Molise. The factors of language maintenance and shift are discussed in terms of some acting macro and micro variables including the recently institutionally reinforced ethnic identity.
