@fresco,

vernacular
n. The everyday language spoken by a people as distinguished from the literary language.
n. A variety of such everyday language specific to a social group or region.

slang
n. A kind of language occurring chiefly in casual and playful speech, made up typically of coinages and figures of speech that are deliberately used in place of standard terms for added raciness, humor, irreverence, or other effect.
n. Language peculiar to a group; argot or jargon.
