Language disorders or Language impairments, as they are also called, are disorders that involve the processing of linguistic information. Problems that may be experienced can involve grammar (syntax and/or morphology), semantics (meaning), or other aspects of language. These problems may be receptive (involving impaired language comprehension), expressive (involving language production), or a combination of both. Language disorders can effect both spoken and written language, and can also affect sign language; typically, all forms of language will be impaired.
Note that these are distinct from speech disorders, which involve difficulty with the act of speech production, but not with language.
