In brief: Mouth/tongue sore
It is difficult to give a specific reason why your mouth and tongue are sore, without knowing what led up to it or what other symptoms your may be experiencing that you are not aware may be related.
Viral, fungal and dental disease can cause these symptoms, as can dry mouth, hormone and vitamin deficiency, hypersensitivity reactions and in certain cases the cause is unknown.
