I've been trying to disable vim from highlighting random words and types for a few hours now. I've noticed vim will highlight specific types when I write python and golang programmes. Even my .vimrc file has random highlighting. I've tried setting set nospell in my .vimrc and have experimented with a number of themes but can't seem to solve this problem, even after researching about it online for a few hours. Here's an example of what I'm talking about: enter image description here Here's my .vimrc file

syntax enable
set number relativenumber
set ts=4
set autoindent
set expandtab
set shiftwidth=4
set showmatch
let python_hightlight_all=1
set nocompatible
filetype off
set rtp+=~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim
call vundle#begin()


au BufNewFile,BufRead *.py
    \ set tabstop=4 |
    \ set softtabstop=4 |
    \ set shiftwidth=4 |
    \ set textwidth=79 |
    \ set expandtab |
    \ set autoindent |
    \ set fileformat=unix

set encoding=utf-8

au BufRead *.py set softtabstop=4 shiftwidth=4


set incsearch

As one of the maintainers of the dracula theme, I believe what you are seeing is dracula’s italics (which fallback to this highlighting in terminals not supporting italics).

As noted in :help dracula, you can turn this off by doing

let g:dracula_italic = 0

before you load dracula.

  • Also note that recent versions of dracula need to be loaded in a slightly different way depending on your plugin manager. Check the github out for information. – D. Ben Knoble Jul 6 at 16:12
