The text surveys the dialectal researches of the varnacular of Metajna on the island of Pag. It analyses the lingual characteristics which classify it as a Chakavian speech of a subdialect of the Ikavian-Jekavian dialect, as well as part of the north-western macrosystem of Pag speeches: variations of the pronoun „ča-, Chakavian accentuation, Chakavian tendency to strong vocalisation, Chakavian double exchange of protolingual front nasal, Chakavian Ikavian-Ekavian exchange of protolingual and old lingual yat, the result of primary and secondary palatalisation of the dental d, modified Chakavism, weakening of fricatives which closes a syllable, the status of the final l in a syllable.

In order to give a broader analysis of the Metajna vernacular on the phonological basis, which was done through field research, the description includes: phonologic inventory, distribution, historical inference of vocalism, consonantism and prosody.
