Word for the Week

Your word for the week:
Babel (pronounced: baybel)
Definition:1.  confused noise, especially of voices 2. noisy assembly 3. scene of confusion

Note how this word is not to be confused with Babble, which is defined as chattering incessantly or talking incoherently.

We get babel from the infamous Tower of Babel (Genesis 11) where God came down and confused the people by having them suddenly begin to speak in different tongues.

Example: Hundreds of impassioned residents packed the town hall, each clamoring to be heard above the babel.
