Hiatus may refer to:

Hiatus, Recess (break)
Hiatus, a small difference in pitch between two musical tones
Hiatus (linguistics), a phonological term referring to the lack of a consonant separating two vowels in separate syllables, as in co-operation
Hiatus (television), a break of several weeks or more in television scheduling
Hiatus (anatomy)
Hiatus, a discontinuity in the age of strata in stratigraphy
Hiatus (band), a Belgian crustcore band
Haitus (housemove), the enforced and massively frustrating gap of two-and-a-half-weeks between moving into a new house, and finally getting the Sky Broadband (for which we are paying) up and running.

Still, I'm back now. And 'Belgian Crustcore' sounds very cool.
