inhabitant
CITIZEN, SUBJECT, INHABITANT, NATIVE
Citizen означает 'гражданин' (особенно достигший совершеннолетия и пользующийся всеми гражданскими правами): Soviet citizens, Polish citizens, citizens of Paris. Иногда citizen употребляется в значении 'подданный какого-л. государства': American citizen. Однако в этом значении существительное citizen распространено главным образом в США, в то время как в Англии употребляется subject: British subject, German subject. Inhabitant обозначает лицо, проживающее в каком-л. месте, и соответствует русским 'житель, обитатель': city of 600,000 inhabitants, inhabitants of Moscow. Native имеет значение 'уроженец': native of Northern Italy, native of Berlin.
