In the course of talking through a major grant application, my colleague Jeremy noticed something about me that I hadn’t known:
 
AKMA identified in OED as first to use word 'subsistent' in this sense since 1870
 
I’m not sure that’s the sense of ‘subsistent’ I’d have identified for my usage, but who am I to argue with the OED?
