Vernacular Term and Construction Term

I really miss working on site and using the vernacular term in construction in my home land. Since I’m working outside Philippines it is impossible to use it. Vernacular term in architecture in the Philippines is used locally by Filipino who worked in site. It's very useful for professionals such as architects & engineers to communicate to skilled worker in construction site.
