A natural language is what most people outside the field of computer science think of as just a language (Spanish, English, etc.). The term “natural” simply signifies that the reference is not to a programming language (C++, Java, etc.). The context is usually “natural language processing (NLP)” or the automated process of taking natural language text and converting it into a form in which it can be analyzed, e.g. by text mining methods.
