The great influence of Babylonian culture upon the lands of the Ancient Near East has long been recognized and intensively studied. Linguistically, this influence has been detected in Biblical Hebrew and in various dialects of Aramaic. It has also been seen that the later stage of Hebrew, Mishnaic Hebrew, itself greatly influenced by Aramaic, has a number of words and expressions that can ultimately be traced back to Akkadian.
