Some have wrongly thought that the Bible has nothing to say concerning the modern day version of tongues being propagated within todays charismatic and pentecostal churches. The problem comes in not taking Paul's statements concerning the unknown tongue at face value. These statements can be found in 1 Cor. 14. First, Paul tells us that no man understands it (this of course was not true concerning the real gift as found in Acts). He then uses musical instraments to illustrate this very point by showing that a bugler blowing out uncertain sounds will only confuse the troops. He also tells us that notes played without distinction cannot produce a song that is known to the listeners. Paul will often use the word for languge in it's singular form in this chapter because there is no such thing as different languages or dialects of gibberish(gibberishes) non language cannot be classified in anything other than one form. To try and understand 1 Cor. 14 without knowing that Paul is refrencing the same kind of gibberish that "tongues" speakers speak today is impossible. His commands for its proper use would only destroy and expose its main proponent.
