    boyo,a false Welsh ?

    He is sitting on the counter in the kitchen talking with Hana. Caravaggio breezes through it on his way out, heavy ropes swathed over his shoulders, which are his own personal business, as he says when anyone asks him. He drags them behind him and as he goes out the door says, “The English patient wants to see you, boyo.”

    “Okay, boyo.” The sapper hops off the counter, his Indian accent slipping over into the false Welsh of Caravaggio.
    ------------------

    The above is from the English Patient.


    What does the false Welsh of Caravaggio mean?

    Is "boyo" a false Welsh?
