 in·at·ten·tion /ˌɪnəˈtɛn(t)ʃən/

From: DICT.TW English-Chinese Medical Dictionary 英漢醫學字典

 in·at·ten·tion /-ˈtɛnʧən/ 名詞

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 In·at·ten·tion n.  Lack of attention, or failure to pay attention; disregard; heedlessness; neglect.
 Novel lays attract our ravished ears;
 But old, the mind inattention hears.   --Pope.
 Syn: -- Inadvertence; heedlessness; negligence; carelessness; disregard; remissness; thoughtlessness; neglect.
 Usage: Inattention, Inadvertence. We miss seeing a thing through inadvertence when do not happen to look at it; through inattention when we give no heed to it, though directly before us. The latter is therefore the worse. Inadvertence may be an involuntary accident; inattention is culpable neglect. A versatile mind is often inadvertent; a careless or stupid one is inattentive.
