Is thinking language?

I have never been a believer in the metaphor that thinking is language or the idea mind is structured like language. A sad event may impair my language skills, but I might still do arithmetic, draw a picture, appreciate a well played baseball game, etc. I reckon without language and refute “thinking is language” thus.
