Suffix –ent is equivalent to –ant. It appears in nouns and adjectives. It is of the Latin origin. Some examples of words which have –ent suffixed to them are accident, different etc. The suffix –ent forms adjectives from nouns or verbs.

The suffix –ent can be defined as absorbent- performing, promoting or causing a specified action, bivalent-being in a specified state or condition and referent- one that performs, promotes or causes a specified action.
