Summary/Abstract: The author reexamines the foundation of the statements that the Štokavian vernacular used for writing in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 16th and 17th century is purely popular and without any backing in the previous tradition as well as that the idiom was undeveloped in the literary sense. At the fi rst glance the koine, in which Franciscan writers were writing, contains the characteristics which inconsistently but completely correspond to the contemporary peculiarities with regard to the substitution of phoneme yat in the spoken language of Kraljeva Sutjeska and its surrounding where they worked,as ir>ijer, the ijekavian substitute in the fl exive endings of nouns, pronouns and adjectives as well as ijekavian refl ex with the indefi nite pronouns. However, the occurrence of a relatively large number of ikavism-forms, gerunds derived by the suffi x –je without iotation, and also certain literary admixtures on the syntactic and lexical aspect is evidence of inheriting the manners of the previous tradition through ars dictaminis, which was known and spread also among Bosniaks and Croats.
