To communicate by language; to express in language.
Comprehension and expression of ideas through the use of an arbitrary, symbolic communication system; involves skills such as listening (auditory comprehension), talking (oral expression), reading (visual comprehension), writing (graphic expression), and gesturing.
In the context of this glossary, a means of verbal communication used by a large community, including the words, their pronunciation and the methods of combining them.
There are two different parts of language, the type we receive (receptive language) and the part we send (expressive language). Receptive language involves the understanding of thoughts, feelings, desires, and the needs of others. Expressive language involves the verbal and non-verbal elements of communicating to others.
A system of symbols that express ideas and enable people to think and communicate with one another.

(1) The written and spoken methods of combining words to create meaning used by a particular group of people. (2) For the Macintosh script management system, a particular implementation of a writing system. Languages within a writing system usually share a character set but differ in rules of composition. For example, English and Spanish are two languages within the Roman writing system.
Although the smallest channel of communication in presentations at seven per cent, language is still critically important. Consists of statements or questions, which can be very specific (Meta Model) or artfully vague (Milton Model).
a type of communication system that employs sounds and/or gestures to construct meaning. Although many animals also have communication systemsâ€”some very elaborateâ€”language is, to the best of our current knowledge, a uniquely human enterprise. Among the characteristics that distinguish language from animal communication systems are transmission from generation to generation (rather than innate knowledge), the ability to convey information about distant places or past and future time, and the ability to lie.
a distinction that is social and/or political rather than based on linguistic criteria. For example, Swedish and Norwegian are quite similar and mutually intelligible, yet they are considered two separate languages by their speakers, principally because they are each identified with a different country. On the other hand, Mandarin and Cantonese are considered by their speakers to be two dialects of a single language, Chinese, despite the fact that they are not mutually intelligible in their spoken forms (although they share a written form). In determining whether two systems are separate languages or dialects of the same language, linguists consider mutual intelligibility to be generally the most reliable test; only the speakers themselves, however, can make the determination.
A specified way of using words and symbols to give the computer instructions and tell it what to do. All software is created using a programming language.
a highly flexible and complex system of communication that allows for the exchange of detailed information about both interior and exterior conditions. As a creative and open system, new signals may be added and new ideas transmitted.
The form or pattern of speech -spoken or written- used by residents or descendants of a particular nation or geographic area or by any large body of people. Language can be formal or informal and includes dialects, idiomatic speech, and slang.
Pre-K,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 13 The systematic use of sounds, signs and symbols as a method of communication; in writing, the choice of words used to convey meaning.
In Danteâ€™s historical period, there was no linguistic unity in Italy. This means that in different parts of the country were spoken different kinds of dialects (better called vernacular languages), although they all derived from Latin language. So, when you read Italian language in the text, it always means the vernacular language Dante wrote with, that is the Florentine dialect. We can say that modern Italian is derived fairly directly from this dialect, even thanks to its use in literature. See also the De vulgari eloquentia.

is on this site considered as a system of sketchy images of our speech (symbols) that is "parallel" to, or "independent" from our direct experiences (transient now). It enables us to receive, enrich and transfer the accumulated knowledge of our cultures by other means then our genetic makeup. The raw physical or electro-chemical interactions could also be considered as a kind of basic language - however, in such cases the "language" is "hard-coded" by physical or electro-chemical "laws" that do not leave much room for adjustments and evolution, although the capacity to symbol probably has its roots in such "languages".

A language is a system, used to communicate, comprising a set of arbitrary symbols and a set of rules (or grammar) by which the manipulation of these symbols is governed. These symbols can be combined productively to convey new information, distinguishing languages from other forms of communication. The word language (without an article) can also refer to the use of such systems as a phenomenon.
