The Bavarie regiolect haes its oreegins in the Germanic tribe kent as the Bavarii, wha establisht a tribal ducherie. This covered a feck o whit is thir days Bavarie an some o Austrick in the early Middle Ages an wis hinderly compesced bi Charlemagne. Housomeivver, piece an piece, thay migratit doun the Danube an intae the Alps tae aw thae auries whaur Austro-Bavarian byleids is spoken. German linguists refers tae this speik variety, a group o three East Upper German dialects, simply as "Bairisch" (Bavarie, athoot "Austro"). Thay are dividit intae "Oberpfälzisch" (Upper Palatinian, e.g. North Bavarie), "Donaubairisch" (Danube[ian] Bavarie, e.g. Central Bavarie) an "Alpenbairisch" (Alpine Bavarie, e.g. Sooth Bavarie).

The leid spoken thare haes reteent its oreeginal Germanic spellin "Bairisch", uisin the Roman 'i'.
