Only Afrikan languages are "vernaculars"

Vernacular term itself is fake. There is no way a language spoken by more than 5 million people can be rated as vernacular unless the people speaking it are worthless!

What does it mean to be “fluent” in a language? "Fluency is defined as being able to speak and write quickly or easily in a given language. It comes from the Latin word fluentem meaning “to flow.” Accent comes from the Middle French meaning “particular mode of pronunciation.” In the original Latin accent us means ”a song added to speech.” Linguists define accents as only affecting pronunciation, not vocabulary or grammar. Rather, a dialect is a version of a language that affects pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar and may interfere with comprehension." -- Details at
