The author follows the trail of the specific mode of gift-giving to the bride – by offering her money for a kiss - among all the regional Bunjevac groups in the Podunavlje [Danube Basin] region, then leading on to the Littoral-Lika Bunjevac groups. By comparative analysis, she establishes the pattern of that phenomenon and its variants in the region of south-eastern Europe. The phenomenon is also characteristic to Vlach groups and to other early-settler peoples, while its territorial representation points to a permeation of the early-settler and Slavic cultural strata in the most southerly parts of south-eastern Europe, as well as to the directions of its later dissemination towards the west and the north, with the final concentrations of its manifestation being found precisely in the more prominently Bunjevac regions.
