dependent?
dependant
Sorry can't spell!
I think they are both correct, ant is the person and ent is the verb.
Wow Mac you learn something every day.

Hi Folks, thanks for your answers, any thoughts about Defendant ? (Trial etc ?)
Not defendant, I'm sure.

A DEPENDANT is the 'one kept' . (Dependent is the adjective)
Dependent is also the archaic word meaning 'hanging down', so maybe dependant was the noun version -someone who was hanging down
I think dependent may be the answer sought though.
Dependent has an archaic meaning of 'hanging down' - i.e. in suspense
One kept could be a kept person, a dependent person- a dependant- one who is dependent.
