About Old Low Baut It's name Pofvoik literally means "The people's mouth".
Old Low Baut or Pofvoik began to diverge from Proto-Baut around the time when an established form of government was proposed. The richer and more powerful of these people went on to speak High Baut; a more conservative (in pronunciation) form of the language. Whereas, the peasants/common folk spoke Old Low Baut.
