Dobbyn began writing the song while in Sydney. He had originally played 'Language' as an acoustic song, however, Twist producer Neil Finn suggested speeding it up and giving it more of a rock sound.
Language was voted the 35th best New Zealand song of the 20th century by APRA, and featured on the related Nature's Best 2 CD. It was also included on the live album Together in Concert: Live, which was performed with Bic Runga and Tim Finn.
