Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
- This sense of the word absentia is normally found only in the borrowed Latin phrase in absentia (“while absent”); however, perhaps due to reanalysis of Latin in as English in, variants are occasionally found, such as “in his absentia” (meaning “while he was absent”). Such variants may be considered nonstandard.
