From the Washington Post in a story on the Catalan unauthorised independence vote.
Even today, pro-independence Catalonians insult Spanish loyalists by calling them “botiflers,” or allies of Philip V.
Botifler? I’ve been trying to guess the Latin root so as to get an idea of the meaning but my efforts have proved fruitless although I have a nagging feeling that I’m missing something glaringly obvious. Any ideas?
