A language is a system of symbols, generally known as lexemes, and the rules by which they are manipulated. The word language is also used to refer to the whole phenomenon of language, i.e., the common properties of languages. Though language is commonly used for communication, it is not synonymous with it. The scientific study of language, its historical development, characteristics, and use in society is known as Linguistics.
Human language is a natural phenomenon, and language learning is instinctive in childhood. In their natural form, human languages use patterns of sound or gesture for the symbols in order to communicate with others through the senses. Though there are thousands of human languages, they all share a number of properties from which there are no known deviations.
Humans have also invented (or arguably in some cases discovered) many other languages, including constructed human languages such as Esperanto or Klingon, programming languages such as Python or Ruby, and various mathematical formalisms. These languages are not restricted to the properties shared by natural human languages.
A sign language
(also signed language
) is a language
which uses manual communication
instead of sound
to convey meaning - simultaneously combining handshapes, orientation and movement of the hands
, and facial expressions
to express fluidly a speaker's thoughts
. Sign languages commonly develop in deaf communities
, which can include interpreters and friends and families of deaf people as well as people who are deaf
or hard of hearing
themselves. They are also used by people with speech impairments such as Aphasia
. When people using different signed languages meet, communication is significantly easier than when people of different spoken languages meet. However, contrary to popular belief, sign language is not universal. Wherever communities of deaf people exist, sign languages develop, but as with spoken languages, these vary from region to region.
