Middle Chakavian (Croatian: srednječakavski dijalekt) is a subdialect of the Chakavian dialect of Croatian. It is spoken on the islands Dugi, Kornati, Lošinj, Krk, Rab, Ugljan (except the southernmost Southern Chakavian village of Kukljica, exhibiting many shared features with Ugljan's otherwise Middle Chakavian dialects) Pag, on the land the cities of Vinodol, Ogulin, Brinje, Otočac, the area around Duga Resa, and part of Central and Northeastern Istria, i.e. between Northern Chakavian and Southern Chakavian

This dialect is peculiar for its mixed Ikavian–Ekavian reflex of Common Slavic yat vowel, which was governed by Meyer–Jakubinskij's law.
