Origin of broadus

First recorded in 1905–10; of uncertain origin; akin to Jamaican, Guyanan English braata; apparently from Latin American Spanish barata “bargain” (“sale” in Mexican Spanish ), from barato, barata “cheap,” ultimately derivative of obsolete Spanish baratar “to negotiate, barter”; the origin of the final -us is unclear; see also barrator, barter
