Language is a social tool which comprises of a structured system of symbols and rules.  It’s a complex combination of several rule arrangements. Every language like Hindi, English or Chinese has a set symbol system and a fixed rule structure. This fixed system of symbol representation gives the speaker a way of communicating and expressing his thoughts and ideas.

Language can be divided into 3 major components (Bloom & Lahey, 1978);

  • Form – comprises of syntax, morphology & phonology
  • Content – comprises of semantics
  • Use- comprises of pragmatics
