eg a servant serves, a participant participates
Apart from in the word ‘scant’,which is a monosyllabic word, the <ant> ending in other words is unstressed and therefore the vowel is a schwa.
Remember there is no rule so the spelling must be learnt. A dictionary will help you spell the word correctly.
