This work is the continuation of Komiža’s dictionary publication, the dictionary of the speech of Komiža, a small town on the island of Vis, which collected the lexis of the letter B. This work includes all together 1191 Glosa words, which is an indicator of the extreme lexical richness of this speech. Compared to the lexis published under the letter A (472 Glosa words only 9 of which are of idioglottic origin), under the Glosa words of the letter B there are almost 30% of idioglottic lexis, which is, presumably, the average for the whole Dictionary. This fact represents sociolinguistic information which provides a challenge for dialectological and ethnological comparative analysis of Adriatic linguistics, and its cultural space, which is marked by the mix of different cultures and languages, among which Romanic influence is the most important. Not only is it important for the west coast of the Adriatic, but also for the eastern-Adriatic native lexical substratum, inherited and preserved up to present time, in speeches of the insular eastern-Adriatic territory. The lexical analysis which this work is based on included all spheres of life, while the most detailed and thorough research was done in the sphere of maritime activities which represent the basis of Komiža’s existence throughout the centuries. That is the reason why that lexical segment is extremely rich, not only in the number of Glosa words, but also with phraseology and stylistic nuances in which the connotative value of some Glosa words is being realized.
Every Glosa word is grammatically analyzed, and many of them have multiple meanings, stylistic and connotative meanings, phraseology and examples of speech from recorded tradition which the author collected over four decades.
