|Title||Towards Assessing the Vernacular in the Arabic Language: A Descriptive Analytical Study|
This research aims to highlight the nature of vernacular in the Arabic language, reasons for their emergence, their importance and natural role. It seeks to achieve a balanced relationship between vernacular and the standard language in a scholarly and objective manner. Vernacular is not an undesirable phenomenon people should seek to treat. It is rather a practice Allah prescribed to humankind, a natural human phenomenon that cannot be eradicated. We shall keep pace and coexist with it. Vernaculars play an obvious humanitarian role; they perform social mission in their own environments. A standard language cannot supersede the vernacular. This is conditioned on that vernaculars should play their role in their own fields. A standard language enjoys a status, role and platforms, which cannot be shared with vernacular. Their relation remains complementary.
