I’m looking for a word (or less wordy term) meaning ‘is depended upon by…’
In same sense that:
[li]A is the parent of B[/li][li]so B is the child of A[/li][/ul]
what is the correct term to use in:
[li]B is dependent upon A[/li][li]so A is ??? B[/li][/ul]
It’s not as simple as re-wording the sentence to talk about it from the point of view of the dependent side - I have a specific need to be able to express it in either direction.
