What is the meaning of "day scholar"?
(S. Devarajan, Coimbatore)
In India, an individual who goes to school/college during the daytime, and returns home in the evening is called a "day scholar". He is a person who doesn't stay in the hostel. So a person who goes to night school should be called a "night scholar", right?
Anyway, to cut a long story short, native speakers of English do not use the term "day scholar". Instead of using the term "day scholar", native speakers would probably say something like, "He lives off campus".
