Provides defintion of what is a language and what is a human language.

What is a Language?

A language is considered to be a system of communicating with other people using sounds, symbols and words in expressing a meaning, idea or thought. This language can be used in many forms, primarily through oral and written communications as well as using expressions through body language.

Human Languages

Primarily there is a distinction between one language and another; usually it may be through country boundaries, population culture, demographics and history. Each country through combinations of blending cultures, environment and other factors has evolved their own unique style of a language. Although Australia, United States and United Kingdom all speak English, they all possess different mannerisms, words used and accents. It also common that many dialects have formed over time in many different towns within the same country. For example in Italy many dialects from the south and vastly differ from the north.
