This is the primary sense of language the use of which is to communicate the thoughts of one person to another through the organs of hearing. Articulate sounds are represented by letters, marks or characters which form words. Hence language consists also in

3. The speech or expression of ideas peculiar to a particular nation. Men had originally one and the same language but the tribes or families of men, since their dispersion, have distinct languages.

4. Style; manner of expression.

5. The inarticulate sounds by which irrational animals express their feelings and wants. Each species of animals has peculiar sounds, which are uttered instinctively, and are understood by its own species, and its own species only.

7. A nation, as distinguished by their speech. Daniel 3:29.
