About Old Bawati


ar-Bawaţ Hawwaḥ

Old Bawati, ancestor language of modern Bawati [yet to be added], was spoken around the 3rd to 9th centuries CE by the ancient Bawati people. Due to the expansion and influence of Bawatshana (ancient Bawati empire) the language was widely spoken throughout the southern regions of Shanava as a lingua franca, and many southern Shanavic languages (southwestern most especially) have borrowed many loanwords from Old Bawati.
