Cognition is the process of acquiring knowledge through perception, attention, association, memory, reasoning, judgment, imagination, thought, and language.
On the other hand, language can refer both to the specifically human capacity for acquisition and use of complex communication systems, and to a specific instance of a complex communication system.
The relation between both lies in the fact demonstrated in several studies that: the subject needs the language to develop, needs the knowledge (cognition to learn) to express itself, and the expression of this knowledge is given through language. There is an interdependence between cognition and language.
