indigenous

indigenous
•• indigent, indigenous, indignant

•• Indigent needy, impoverished.
•• Indigenous (of plants, or animals, or inhabitants) native (Oxford American Dictionary).
•• Indignant moved by mingled anger and scorn or a sense of injury (The Pocket Oxford Dictionary).
•• Даже люди с высшим языковым образованием часто путают эти слова (или не знают первых двух из них). Запомним: indigent – малоимущий, нуждающийся, просто бедный; indigenous – коренной (говорится о населении, небольших народностях); indignant (кстати, редко встречающееся слово; американцы и англичане предпочитают говорить angry и даже mad) – возмущенный.
