The Devil’s Latin? New dictionary of language not spoken for thousands of years.

Scholars had previously called the language of the first civilizations Assyrian, but then learned that Assyrian developed from the more ancient tongue called Akkadian.

“Akkadian was the most commonly used language throughout the Near East for thousands of years,” Gil Stein, Director of the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute says. Stein says the study of Akkadian has been aided by the analysis of the modern languages which evolved from it.
