Local Dialect

The speech of Split originally belonged to Southern Chakavian or Ikavian Chakavian dialect, but under the influence of Shtokavian immigrants and standard Croatian promoted by the state media, a local idiom that has lost many of characteristic Chakavian traits developed, even though a part of older population retains Chakavian dialect in their speech.
