Does the Syriac Orthodox Church Use Vernacular?

By which I am talking about the Syrian Church, not the Indian Church. Do they interchange with Arabic etc. with Syriac, or do they just use the Syriac? As yet, I have not seen any use of a vernacular.

Some parishes do, some parishes don't.  I've been blessed to pray at a few churches in the diaspora that use English.

Is Amharic/Tigrinya/etc used at any extent in mainland services?

Yes.  It varies from parish to parish depending upon the proclivities of the priests.  You're more likely to hear the vernacular in Eritrean than in Ethiopian parishes though.
