The suffix -ant means ´someone who ´.  It ´s very similar to -ent, -er, and -or.  An occupant is someone who occupies i.e. a house. Someone who teaches is a teacher. Someone who responds is a respondent.  Hope this helps. Peter

Do you mean e.g. "ambulant"? In this case, it has the same function as the gerund suffix "-ing".
 
Brilliant - which shines
Hesitant - who hesitates
Triumphant - which is victorious, which triumphs
 
etc.
