Outside of language, how would you measure one's ability to
conceptualize abstrats? I am not saying that we ONLY think through
language. I am saying we all think in language.

"But the fact that we all think in language suggests some correlation
between our language and our intelligence."
Why would you presume that "we all think in language?" Except for those
conscious internal monologues/self-dialogues, how would we know? That
there may be cultural constructs common to thought and language both does
not require that thought be in language and so bear the form and
restrictions of language.
