A language is a system of visual, auditory, or tactile symbols of communication and the rules used to manipulate them. Language can also refer to the use of such systems as a general phenomenon.
Language is considered to be an exclusively human mode of communication. Although other animals make use of quite sophisticated communicative systems, none of these are known to make use of all of the properties that use to define language.
