    Wealthy inheritor, wealth inheribor

    Hi,

    I wonder if these two terms mean the same?

    "Wealthy inheritor" and "wealth inheritor"


    Thanks a lot

    Re: Wealthy inheritor, wealth inheribor

    Neither is a particularly natural expression.

    A wealthy inheritor would be a rich person who has inherited something.
    A wealth inheritor would be somebody who has inherited wealth.

    Thanks a lot, Johnson.

    BTW, would you like to tell me why you mentioned that "neither is a particularly natural expression"?


    Did you mean native speakers don't use such terms?

    Thanks a lot
