•• 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.
