Incorrect spelling, explanation:
absense is the incorrect form of a noun absence. The wrong spelling absense is most likely coming from pronunciation, as in the spoken form we hear s. The IPA of this word is the following: /ˈæb səns /. That leads us to misspell absence as absense. It is also worth knowing that this word came to English from Old French, where it originated from the Latin word absentia.
Correct spelling, explanation: absence originates from the Latin word absentia, but it came to the English language through Old French. The spelling in IPA is /ˈæb səns /, which leads us to the possible reason for the mistake. As we hear s in the pronunciation, we can easily write it down as
absense, although the only correct spelling is absence.
