From Old Latin dingua which is a cognate (kindred) with Old English tunge, The change of d (in Old Latin dingua) to l (in Latin lingua) was probably due to dialectal influence (the so-called "Sabine l").

tongue or language

The word "language" literally comes from a Latin word lingua which means "tongue". The Greek stem is glosso- and glotto- which stand for both "language" and "tongue".

Language is used in several thousand forms and dialects expressing all kinds of views, literatures, and ways of life. If we look to the past, we can only see as far back as language lets us see it. As we look to the future, we can only plan through the means of language.

Etymology: Old English tunge, "organ of speech, speech, language"; from Proto-Germanic (a hypothetical prehistoric ancestor of all Germanic languages, including English) tungon, Old High German zunga; German Zunge; comparable to Latin lingua, "tongue, speech, language"; from Old Latin dingua.
