Language is one of the most important features of our lives; it is the one thing that connects us not just in a social way but also through decades and even generations. It is probably the only one thing that almost every human being has, whether he is a teacher, lawyer, beggar, or even a president. But what and how much do we know about our language? Do we know that even in our own native language we have differences, that we all do not use the same language in the same manner? That these differences can sometimes bring color to our culture and lives but at the same time could cause misunderstandings? Or even that these small differences could sometimes give clues to our past and future? In this paper I will look at a vernacular of Turkish just like this, used in the Black Sea region, mainly around the eastern parts. I will show how vocabularies can be owned by certain groups and how even syntax and phonological features such as consonants can be changed.
