TENANT: One that pays rent to use or occupy land, a building, or other property owned by another. Plural: TENANTS.
TENET: An opinion, doctrine, or principle held as being true by a person or especially by an organization. Plural: TENETS.
Do not confuse the two. You do not charge your tenets rent. You do not teach others about your religion’s tenants.
How to remember which is which? “I was talking to my landlord and he said one of the other tenants saw ten ants.” TEN + ANTS = TENANTS
