Abstract

The most valuable attribute of human being is his dialect and capability to speak. Living in society a human being definitely requires a natural, effective and fast source of communication in order to achieve his requisites and that can be possible through a language, being the most effective medium. It is pertinent to mention here that a great linguist and philologist, ‘Uthman ibn Jinni for the first time in 400 AH defined that "language is the system of conventional spoken symbols by means of which human beings as members of a social group and participants in its culture communicate”. This provided a strong foundation to the successors who by and large paid tribute to his idea. The article under reference is an introduction to language and its social services, encompassing thought provoking and valuable contents of intellectual linguists and philologists and will definitely provide handsome information on the subject to the honorable readers.
