Wouldn't this actually be "triant"? Where's the "d" coming from? All
your other examples brought their own roots to the party and picked up
the "ant" when they got there; the "ant" didn't bring any friends.

I think you're right that it should be an "a" but I think maybe that's
only half the problem.
