In this interior upland hamlets Batomaal and Šuraye on southeastern hills of Krk island, the medieval local idiom Veyska zayk or »cakayšćina« is conserved but till now not studied, including many archaic words in extinction. The autodidact late writer F. Tomašić during many years collected and noted the related texts of Veyska folk tradition. After his narration 33 ancient Veyska songs, 86 local proverbs and sayings, as wel 54 oaths in this idiom are presented here. The most important there is the mythological series of »Veyske Povede« with 8 epic legends noted by prof. M. Lovrić: on the origins of World, inhabiting of Adriatic, Croatian medieval kingdom, battles with pyrates and Tartars, Venetians and Frangipani, etc. The collected matter needs further ethnocultural and comparative-linguistic studies.
