Dependant, Dependent - English editing.

Until recently, the only correct spelling of the noun in British English was dependant, as in a single man with no dependants. However, in modern British English (and in US English), dependent is now a standard alternative. The adjective is always spelled -ent, never -ant, as in we are dependent on his goodwill.
