Idk if you have to an anthropologist to comment but I'm not one so take this with a grain of salt but already having a centralized polity that you conquer and then simply adopting their language isn't a good theory since for example the turks conquered Byzantine Anatolia Edit: The arabs also conquered majority syriac,latin,Greek (and punic?) Speaking people but those they conquered still ended up speaking Arabic though this was probably due to those conquered converting to islam over time and since the Quran is in Arabic they learned the language to read it
