"The content of the language is more personal than objective, dependent on/depending on the relationship between speaker and listener."
I wonder whether 'dependent on' is proper and grammatical in this sentence. If it is, is there any differences between 'depending on' and 'dependent on'?
Also, I want to know whether "dependent on..." is a parallel structure with "The content... than objective" or a participial phrase.
Otherwise, are "dependent on..." and "The content... than objective" an apposition structure?
