A person that lives in a particular place

Hi all,

With the meaning of “the person that lives in a particular place”, “inhabitant” and" resident" in these sentences are interchangeable?

  1. A town of 15,000 inhabitants/residents.
  2. A resident/ an inhabitant of France.
  3. There were confrontations between local residents/inhabitants and the police.


Hi Khahn

Why not just add your question here?

Resident vs Inhabitant

Regarding your sentences:


What do we call residents of Manchester, England? How about residents of Edinburgh, Scotland?
