Philippine English AbsenousA person who habitually absents.

This is derived from the word "absent", an antonym of the word "present". This is distinct from the word "absentee": a person that is absent; and "absenteeism": the habit of the absenous. This is sometimes pronounced as "absenot" in our local language, but sometimes spelled "absenos". For example: * "absenous student" - a student who habitually absents. * "Sa wakas, naka-eskwela na jud ulit ang absenos." - "At last, the one who always absents attended the school again." Note: the word is only commonly used in Cebuano language, some languages of the Philippines might not heard about this word.
