The language was mostly spoken at home or in social gatherings where people had the freedom to talk without following certain rules as it was with the classical Latin.
Language spoken and not written was highly diluted by other languages and could not be easily traced.

Social interactions among the normal people in the Roman Empire and other commoners in other communities also influenced the growth of the language. It was further widely spread to other countries because of their integration with other cultures and social groups. The Romans who spoke Sermo Vulgaris played a great role in the diversification of the language.
