Dear List Member , 

For verrnacular vs dialect distinction; I noticed that some authors prefer using the term dialect, while others use as a synonym the term vernacular . Nevertheless, I got a Pr in linguistics who confirms that vernacular is a variety which is socially and economically dominated by another group .
Stewart ( 1963) suggests that the only difference is that vernacular is a standardized variety whereas dialect is not !
I am a bit confused , is there any comments on this?
