does Language require Deception to exist?

 not kidding, folks.

 In order to have a language, does a species first need to be able to
lie/decieve/trick/fool/bluff others of their species?

 *If* a deception-free species could & did have a language, would it be
easily translatable?

 food for thought, yes?
