  • Link between language and communication
Language and communication are so closely related that they are almost the same. If we used a thesaurus to find alternative words for language the top alternative is 'verbal communication', 'words', 'speech' and 'talking'.

Spoken language gives us the ability to communicate in an effective manner and express the direct meaning we intend. We have more flexibility in our range of communication and while it is possible to communicate via facial expressions and gestures, we have evolved into complex beings that have the ability to vocally express ourselves.

  • Language
Language is not only a verbal way to communicate but we can also communicate through our body language and facial expressions; which is a whole language of its own. Body language can be used to a much more subtle effect and is very often a subconscious revelation of our feelings.

Studying a person's body language can often tell you a great deal about them and can be as effective, if not more effective, than a spoken conversation. Folded arms or a shoulder turned slightly away can indicate a reluctance to communicate and can show that someone is uncomfortable with the conversation or situation.

Open, relaxed body language can be encouraging for other people and can persuade someone to also relax into a comfortable conversation.

  •   Communication
We can communicate in the written form which gives us the opportunity to contemplate our language and thus make sure it is used as effectively as possible. Writing gives us the chance to think of creative, interesting and heartfelt language that can have much more impact than spoken language.

With modern technology there are now many more ways of communicating with people. We communicate via text messages, emails, social media, voicemails and instant messaging. It gives us the opportunity to communicate with people all around the globe and remain in contact with people 24/7.

You must understand the vital role of language in communications. Whether it is a communication from one to one or you're addressing a number of people or even the whole country or the world. Languages do play a very significant role in communicating. And the best communication can be made orally. As you see in radios and televisions the most important role is of the language. There was time when movies were without any sound thus they were not as popular as they are in our age.

So you can easily guess this all became possible due to the communication of sound to the audience and because of the fact that people can understand the language of the movies. Hence languages play a very important role in communication. And if you're not using proper language in communicating with others then there are chances that you would not be able to properly communicate your message to the people. From these facts you can easily judge the role of languages in communications. I hope this is the answer of your question.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION

Language is the system of words or signs that people use to
express thoughts and feelings to each other (i.e. Understood by a particular
group of people). The oxford talking dictionary mentions 'communication' as a
synonym of language and for most people effective communication means a
proficient use of language. “Language is a purely human and non-instinctive
method of communicating ideas, emotions and desires by means of voluntarily
produced symbols.” (Edward Sapir).

Communication is the act of conveying intended meanings from
one entity or group to another through the use of mutually
understood signs and semiotic rules. Communication is the
act or process of using words, sounds, signs, or behaviors to express or
exchange information or to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc., to
someone else. Communication is a way of sharing information.

Humans communicate with language. Though, language is not
the only means of communication. Whenever we think of communication we always
associate it with language .Language is a means that we use in presenting our
ideas, thoughts, feelings, opinions to the world. It is what we use to exhibit
our cultural norms and orientations in and the whole essence of our being is
captured in our language.

Language and communication are different things that cannot
be separated. Language is surely the most important tool of communication that
individual have at their disposal. This is because it is language that permits
people to communicate. The purpose of acquisition of Language as proved by
Chomsky is for communicative purpose.  You
must understand the vital role of language in communications. Whether it is a
communication from one to one or you're addressing a number of people or even
the whole country or the world. Languages do play a very significant role in
communicating
