Abstract

The author has published 150 folk songs from Vinišće near Trogir. It is a selection from 500 songs recorded by direct contact with 20 tellers in the field, and some of them have been recorded on cassette. They deal with various folk songs, once very popular in this region (čelatnica-songs, pisme u skratice /couplets/, love songs, epic and satirical poems), which reveal events and customs in this village, the characteristics of the dialect and the speech of its population. Unfortunately, these songs are rarely heard today, only at some special occasions (weddings, birthdays, and the like).
The author was collecting the songs from July 1984 to November 1985. The narrators had learned and performed them while working in the field: olive gathering, preparing figs to dry, in the vineyards, fishing and minding cattle. Some of the songs arrived at Vinišće from other parts of Dalmatia, but a lot of them originated in the village. In addition to the local, they also have a general importance. The selected songs were composed in the Croatian mother-tongue, in the Chakavian dialect strongly influenced by the Štokavian dialect.
To lighten up the social and cultural background, in which these songs originated, brief reports from the history of Vinišće are published.
