In speech-language pathology we make a clear distinction between a person’s speech versus language skills (click here for more details about speech difficulties and articulation). Language refers to the linguistic knowledge in our head regardless of written or spoken form modalities. It includes the ability to understand and use words (vocabulary), how their meaning relates to other word meanings (semantic organization), and the intrinsic and mostly unconscious knowledge of rules that govern how we put words together to form phrases and sentences (syntax) and how we change the form of words to express things like plural, past tense etc. (morphology), these latter two also called grammar.
