    Default Leech / leach?

    Hi. When a person hangs around and sucks your money away, you'd say they "person x leached my cash" correct? When you are using it to refer to a person though, wouldn't you say "person x is a leech"? I was a little confused about the leech/leach and figured an English forum would be a good place to clarify :)

    A dictionary is a good place to look up the meanings of words.

    The bloodsucking creature is a "leech."
