i found that definition for SOAP is
SOAP is a mechanism for inter-application communication between systems written in arbitrary languages, across the Internet
.
that means soap can use to connect many languages.SO can we say soap is a universal language ?

You can say whatever you like. If you're concerned about whether your statement has any meaning at all, that's a different problem. What is the point of your question?

And you're just saying that it's possible to communicate between any languages using SOAP. This may or may not be true. But as I said before, you can say what you like. You can say that SOAP is bigger than a bicycle if you like. You seem to attach some importance to the statement "SOAP is a universal language" but I don't.

SOAP is universal if every system you want to connect to supports a SOAP-based interface. "The best thing about standards is that there's so many to choose from"
