The language center is part of the human brain cortex where most of language processing takes place. It does not refer to any single or specific part of the brain — mostly because no such physical "center" is currently known. However, Broca's area and Wernicke's area have both been shown to be important in language processing and, as a result, are normally considered parts of the "language center."
