What is language?

Here’s a great diagram/illustration from David Gray about Language. He says:

Language is more than just communication; it is the primary method by which we do things together. Language is the accumulation of shared meaning – of common ground.

1) One-way communication: message sent
2) Two-way communication: Both sides feel understood
3) Collaboration: Thinking, planning and making decisions
4) Co-creation: Joint activity, making and doing
