It is clear you do not need lenguage for abstract thinking, there are tons of obvious evidence.
Have you heard at the all in the mind chapter of nim chimpsky? it is amazlilngly told, with the help of natasha mitchell.

I am not sure about chimps not being able to aquire a more sophisticated language, than the one nim did with only 100 signs. I would like to remind you how nim kids end. Once nim died, his kids learned nim's sign language and continued using through the rest of their life (his wife could not learn it), it is a pretty enlighting fact about how language is learned and transmitted.
