6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have schemed to do.

7 Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth; and they left off the building of the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confuse the language of all the earth; and from there did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

From Merritt Ruhlen's book " The Origin of Language".

Note how the main language branches Semitic, Turkic and Indo-European meet at just the point where the Tower of Babel may be. Not in Babylon but in the area East of the Black Sea.
