Summary
Dugi Rat is a newer settlement on the coast between Split and Omiš created by Čakavian speakers, who came there from the nearby mountain area, Štokavian speakers from the heartland and also by the workers in the factory of calcium carbide and calcium cyanide, who came from different areas. The base layer is Čakavian and therefore the local dialect belongs to the South Čakavian dialect, just like the local dialects between Podstrana and Omiš. There are some important phonological features of the local dialect of Dugi Rat that were discovered during recent field work.
