Not to be confused with "ambient," in the immediate vicinity ("within one's ambit").

Is there "adient" also, meaning tending to move toward the stimulus?

Just think of the Anagrams possibilities:
--adient + s + r = strained
--adient + o + i = ideation
--adient + e + l = entailed
--adient + g + r + h = threading

I thought "abient" was a stage direction, similar to "exeunt".
