Abstract: This paper presents the phonological and morphological features of the local dialect of Vošteni, a village belonging to the Istrian municipality of Sv. Lovreč. The linguistic features have been analysed in the context of the Southwest Istrian dialect group, to which it belongs according to Brozović's (1988) and Lisac's (2009) classification, as well as of those of the neighbouring Tinjan type dialects. It has been concluded that the linguistic characteristics of Vošteni are equal to those of Butori (Pliško, Ivetić 2010: 127–135) and Hlistići (Pliško, 2007: 95–106), and differ from those of Kringa in the truncated infinitive, Šćakavian realisation of the old consonant cluster *stj, the change jt > tj > ć in the verb doć, poć, and in the reduction of final l in the masculine form of the active verbal adjective: bi, voli, sti (Pliško, Ljubešić 2009: 101–102). Further research of Sv. Lovreč dialect type will define the dialect subgroup and its place within the Central Southwest Istrian dialect group.
