Yes. But it's better to just set a language to your document. It's mainly for search-engines and browsers. But it's best practice to set what language your content will be in.

You can read more about languages here: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_language_codes.asp

Hope this helps, happy coding!

thank you
