buscon n. (in the Dominican Republic) a facilitator for legal or bureaucratic matters, such as a job recruiter for organizations in the United States or a baseball scout. Also buscone. Editorial Note: The form buscone is an Anglophone back-formation from the Spanish plural buscones. The bracketed items in the 1996 citation are found in the original text. Etymological Note: From the Spanish buscón ‘rogue,’ ‘cheat,’ ‘pettifogger,’ with the etymological connection to buscar ‘to search’ probably also coming into play. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
