Just to clarify what the previous two folks said, SQL is a language. A DBMS is a system or a piece of software that actually manages/maintains the database - stores tables, handles searches, maintains realationships, etc. SQL is a scripting language you use to interact with the DBMS - eg to do searches, add/remove tables, insert data, etc.
