I am looking for a word which means "term for inhabitant of". An example sentence would be:

The _________ of London is Londoner.

This is not a duplicate of the marked question as it asks what is a "term for inhabitant of", the answer being demonym - this is completely different to the supposedly duplicate question and I would appreciate these requests being retracted.

    Are you looking for "demonym?" "Inhabitant of" doesn't fit in the blank, so your question is a bit awkward. – jejorda2 Nov 2 '15 at 19:09
  • @jejorda2 Yes I was looking for this; I realise now it was phrased awkwardy and did not clarify I was looking for a word to describe the term not the person. Thank you to all the answers, my mistake was in the wording. – user116295 Nov 2 '15 at 19:19


  • an inhabitant; resident.


Ngram: denizen of London


Native will work well for that purpose, I think. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/native
