It is the least widespread of the Serbo-Croatian subdialects in Croatia. It is an Ijekavian accent of Shtokavian dialect, with significant presence of Chakavisms and Ikavisms. Unlike Eastern Herzegovinan, the Dubrovnikan subdialect shares some common features of Ikavisms from Eastern Bosnian subdialect. Neoshtokavisation gave similar results in Dubrovnik as in East Herzegovina, but starting points were different for both. This subdialect was once considered independent; however, today it is considered a part of Ijekavian Neoshtokavian (East Herzegovina subdialect). Some features are still different, like certain vowels.
