Baboo (Hindustani - Babu, a title of respect, like Mr.), a term commonly applied to a native of India (especially Bengal) who has received some English education. "Baboo English," produced by the unintentional misuse by such natives of terms and phrases derived from English literature (the more grandiloquent the better), is well known, and specimens may often be found in the native portion of the Anglo-Indian Press.
