  • Sorry bilby, not FRENCH either!

  • Well, obviously it means the same thing as absquatulant.

    The act of absconding is abscondment; abscondent is the associated adjective that describes the state of someone in the act of absconding.

    It works like "transcend". Not every potential derived form is listed for a given headword in the dictionary.

    (Bilby is out delivering the chocolate of Easter, so I am taking the liberty of responding on his behalf; you could say I am respondent...)
