ABSTRACT
In this article, the structure of language and worldview is defined and the connections between them is discussed. In my opinion, worldview in language is the construction of the world in that language and a format created by speakers of that language. Language plays the most active role in the formation of a worldview. The understanding of the world varies from language to language. A system of meaning which is the current reality in the world is not fit into the system in another language. In fact, a language is inseparable from others only in terms of language indicators. On the other hand the language gives people a different perspective and a different form of thought.
