How to name the languages of sentient beings?

What's a good word for the set of languages, nat and con, that are meant
for communication between sentient beings -- i.e. excluding computer
programming languages, data modelling languages, and so on, but including
languages for aliens, and unusually smart hamsters, and what-have-you?

"Human" languages is wrong, as is "natural". I'm rather at a loss.
