Is "Piau" the base word? If so, why don't you change this to "Piau"?

piau/biau ('who owns') is a very odd verb form that commonly appears in both spellings. On its own, it is best translated as 'who owns', but since it always appears in context with other words it is best to translate the whole phrase containing it rather than just word by word.
