Dear Ron, 
I really think you are right because Steward in 1963 said something about concepts of vernacular and dialect which are unacceptable now .

Hi everybody ,
While teaching today Stewards' (1963) language typologies , I discovered that he made a kind of difference between vernacular and dialect , but in 2011 , do you think that there is any difference between such concepts .
For ease of use , I consider them as equals  in meanings so am I wrong?

In my admittedly perhaps idiosyncratic view, all "languages" are actually dialects of Human Language.  If I use the term "vernacular" I generally intend it to mean an "unwritten" or at least "non-standard" dialect, as opposed to a "standard" one.

Feel free to ignore this post.
