A poster I have designed focus' on the dichotomy of being dependent on the existing power grid and being independent of the grid using renewable energy. As I explored various solutions I came upon an observation; "in dependence" appears to say that one is dependent upon something. For example, "Adam is in dependence of a wifi connection."
However, I realize the previous statement is structured wrong, in that the words "in dependence" can not be used in such a way(please forgive my elementary understanding of sentence structure... I believe it's being used as a prepositional phrase).
Is the previous statement technically correct? If not, then what does the "in" component of the word represent? Would it not be more appropriate to use "monodependent" or "unidependent"?
