English term or phrase: bathroom / toilet
I am a teacher of autistic kids, and one of my students is Indian (from India). I'm not sure exactly what language is spoken in his home (Hindi, punjabic, etc.), but he always says a word that sounds like "cuscus" or "cacous" when he needs to use the bathroom. I am trying to figure out if it is a real word or something he has made up. Thanks!
