This paper presents the linguistic features of the local dialect spoken in the settlement of Kacana, situated on the territory of the city of Vodnjan in Istria. According to the results of this research, this dialect belongs to the SW Istrian or štakavian-čakavian dialectal group. The linguistic characteristics of this idiom are identical to those that have been found in the dialects of the neighbouring village of Orbanići and other dialects characteristic for the Marčana region researched so far, as well as those that belong to the southern sub-group of the local dialects of Barban. This leads to the conclusion that dialects with these features can be found even further to the west.
