Ćakule (chit-chats) are episodic conversations, seemingly casual yet always precious even when the topic isn’t. Ćakue are wordplay, rhythm, and voice. They are intertwined short sentences, associations, and indirectness. They embody a form of coastal social communication – talking, retelling, adding details, starting from the truth, and adding a touch of fiction. It’s a kind of confidential information everyone knows. While chit-chat is often associated with women, men are equaly adept – thus we have “ćakulanti” and “ćakulone”. Through ćakule everuthing is said, even what remains unsaid. They are oral precursor to social networks.
