I sort of with you on this one (well, i'm good at both, but the point stands). Modern maths isn't the root of language. However, it is the closest thing we have to a universal language. Throughout the universe 1+3=4, but Cup doesn't necessarily mean a drinking vessel.
Interesting factoid: Maths and languages use the same side of the brain.
