I'm searching for word suggestions. Something that you could use in a line of prose, for example; "the auburn-haired person who forgets things often", with the "person who forgets things often" replaced by a single-word alternative. I've thought of simply shortening it to "the auburn-haired forgetful", but though having some initial charm, it simply comes across as very offputting.
This is why I'm turning to this site. I need some input and advice on giving an easier name for this phenomenon.
