Hi y'all, and with apologies for cross-posting?

Does anyone have any information on the status of Aramaic IN BABYLON during the Neo-Babylonian period? How widely was it used, by whom, did it have any official status (like it would during the Persian period)? Was the exiled Jewish community more likely to speak Aramaic or Babylonian/Akkadian? Are there any official documents in Aramaic? 

Thanks,

Yigal Levin
