Hábitant. n.s. [habitant, Fr. habitans, Lat.] Dweller; one that lives in any place; inhabitant.

Not to earth are those bright luminaries
Officious; but to the earth's habitant:
And for the heav'n's wide circuit, let it speak
The maker's high magnificence.
Milton's Paradise Lost.

Pow'rs celestial to each other's view
Stand still confest, though distant far they lie,
Or habitants of earth, or sea, or sky.
Pope's Odyssey.

Sources: Milton, John (449) · Pope, Alexander (393)
