Sumerian language replaced by Akkadian language

The Sumerians lived in the Southern part of Mesopotamia whereas the Akkadians lived in the North. Both had their languages despite similarities in culture and Government.

The Sumerians ruled over most of Mesopotamia, so initially, the primary language spoken by all was Sumerian Language. The Akkadian language replaced the Sumerian language as the primary spoken language of Mesopotamia during 2400 BC.
