Limitless Alien Languages (or lack thereof?)

I have noticed that when alien races and their languages are mentioned, it goes like this.

Klingons speak Klingon.
Romulans speak Romulan.
Vulcans speak Vulcan.

On Earth we have a few thousand languages, so why has Star Trek never looked more into the languages of other worlds? Surely, they have as many languages as we do, maybe more. A passing mention would even be in order, right?

Kainon: "He's a Cardassian. That's reason enough."
Kira: "No... It's not."
