talking about language,we say language is just a mean of communication, but thinking brodly we can say that language has helped in the civilization of human beings. without language do you think that you can think! i mean to say,try thinking something! what you will notice that to think also you have to make use of language!without it you even cannot think !

language is the medium of communication. we as human express our thoughts or the product of our thinking through the use of language. without the thought we cant express what we think. without the language we cant communication. there are other means of language it may be language through the use of signs like what the mute does or through braile system. what you are saying is a process without one of the component a message will not be delivered. i hope my explanation made you understand the importance of the three.

I think we would be just fine without language. Did you know that over 80% of our communication is nonverbal? I am taking an awesome communication class and we are learning about this stuff. I am sure we would find another way to think, I mean all other creatures on earth do it. We would think more with emotions, rather than just computing things, and we would also see more vivid images in our minds to think about something. I try exercises where I think without words, it is really fun and relaxing once you get it. Most of your dreams have no verbal connections, which is really cool, I love dreaming- it's like a connection to the days when we did not have a language, where we could just visualize things.
