    Abstract

    The article deals with the geographically most marginal representative of the Štoji dialect group of Burgenland Croatian. The author assumes that the dialect has a tone distinction and he establishes, among other things, that the vowel lengthening before tautosyllabic resonants yielded a long falling vowel, which is in contrast with what has been found until now in other Burgenland Croatian dialects that have a tone distinction and is a potentially very im-portant source of information on the origin of the dialect. Another interesting trait of the dialect is the fact that phonemically short stressed e, a and o can be realized long in any position, including final open syllables. This is the most extreme variant found until now of the Burgenland Croatian tendency towards lengthening of non-high vowels.
