Yes, In simple words vocabulary is the basis of language. It is the raw building blocks of the language that helps to express thoughts, ideas, opinions and grow relationships.
As British linguist David A Wilkins says
“without grammar, very little can be conveyed;
without vocabulary nothing can be conveyed.”
To simply put it think about how children acquire language. Before they ever attempt complex structures, they’ll utter single words such as ‘duck’, ‘ball’ and ‘teddy’ and are usually able to communicate what they want.
