Freelang Dalmatian-English dictionary

Dalmatian is an extinct language that was spoken in what is now Croatia. It is classified as an Italic language, somewhere between Romanian and Italian, influenced by Venetian and Serbo-Croatian. Dalmatian was spoken on the Dalmatian coast from Fiume (now Rijeka) as far south as Cottora (Kotor) in Montenegro. Speakers lived mainly in the coastal towns of Jadera (Zadar), Tragurium (Trogir), Spalatum (Split), Ragusa (Dubrovnik) and Acruvium (Kotor), and on the islands of Curicta (Krk), Crepsa (Cres) and Arba (Rab). Each of these cities had their own dialect, but the two major dialects were Vegliot in the North and Ragusan in the South. Ragusan was the most prestigious dialect and was the official language of the Republic of Ragusa, an aristocratic maritime republic centered on the city of Dubrovnik which reached its commercial peak in the 15th and the 16th centuries, before being conquered by Napoleon and annexed by the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1808. At that time Ragusan language had been replaced by Italian language (among the higher class) and Croatian language (spoken by lower classes). It is reported that the last speaker of Dalmatian language died in 1898.
