Human language

A human language is a language primarily intended for communication among humans. The two major categories of human languages are natural languages and constructed languages. The term is used in the opposition to other kinds of communication used by humans traditionally called "language", such as formal language or machine language, as well as to hypothetical alien languages.

Often the terms "human language" and "natural language" are used synonymously.
