ANSWER (Robert Smith): Humans use language to express thought. Thoughts can be ideas, mental images, sounds, or feelings (emotions). Whether those thoughts are original (created by your imagination), memories, or a combination of the two, we use language to communicate them to others. Being a creative and resourceful species has allowed us to come up with various forms of language. We are able to express those thoughts via verbal language, sign language, body language, song, prose, or poetry. Our advanced language has permitted us to share thoughts efficiently and effectively. This efficient communication has allowed us to become more productive in our daily lives---it has shaped today's culture and civilization.

Language can be as harmful as it is helpful. Language is as useful as the mastery behind it. It is infinitely easier to communicate with another if both have mastered the language they are speaking. But even then, language has it's problems. We communicate in spoken language, body language and often times will communicate in unsaid ways. Often times it is more important to understand what was not said, then what was said. The more critical the thinking, the better the chance of successful communication.

Desert peoples may have many phrases for types of sand but need to borrow words from other languages to describe ice. Language can be used to express perceptions, thoughts and feelings. Some languages are more rich in descriptive phrases than others. Also some concepts (like owning land or warfare) cannot be expressed in some languages.

Answer: Interesting article taken from Insight on the Scriptures Jehovah's Witnesses official website; Language is any means, vocal or other, by which feelings or thoughts are expressed or communicated. Generally, however language means a body of words and the methods of combining these as understood by a community of people. Language is most intimately associated with the mind, which employs the speech organs-throat, tongue, lips and teeth as its instruments. Encyclopedia Britannica: Thinking and words go together. Words are man's principal means of receiving, storing, manipulating and transmitting information. Different languages require different thought patterns.

It helps people relate to others how they feel and to what degree or intensity they felt those emotions. It also allows people to express praise, to ask for help, and to display discomfort.
