Language is different from Speech  

 

Language is made up of socially shared rules that include the following:

  • What words mean
  • How to make new words
  • How to put words together
  • What word combinations are best in what situations

 

Speech is the verbal means of communicating.  Speech consists of the following:

  • Articulation
  • Voice
  • Fluency
