What's more common? I've been studying some new vocabulary, I saw some words like for example, angler or sunshade. What I want to know is: do the native use more these words? One thing you should know is that I've only heard fisherman and beach umbrella.

Yes, we use these words, but they have different meanings from the other words you mention. 1. Angler and fisherman are different things: An angler is a person who catches individual fish with a rod, line and hook, usually as a hobby or pastime. A fisherman collects large amounts of fish in a large net as a job, usually from a boat. 2. Beach umbrella and parasol have the same meaning. They both have the same traditional shape as the kind of umbrella that protects you from rain. A sunshade is something different. Sunshades are flat, and tend to rectangular - like an awning, used to shade the front section of a bar, for example. You can get sunshades that fix onto a baby buggy, or attach to the window of your car.
