Hi Sam

An interesting idea about a single language spoken in many ways but why do you presume it broke down due to its 'complexity' ?

Language evolves to accommodate and reflect social and cultural changes rather than 'breaks down', doesn't it?

However, the date you suggest of 2000 BCE for the 'breakdown' of this system is perhaps too late as 'Archaic' Sumerian and Akkadian language records exist, showing lots of commonalities, that have been dated to the third millenium BCE (29th to 31st BCE.)
