Hii, everyone!! Let's get back to our English lesson at this hour. Hahah :p
You see, I've noticed that most people nowadays are often confused with the word 'breath' and 'breathe' which leads to the wrong usage of the words, such as 'I can't breath', 'take a deep breathe', etc. So here I am, not as a teacher but as a friend, telling you the difference ;)
BREATH is a noun that indicates the air that is either inhaled or exhaled during breathing. Literally, it also means a short pause. (e.g.; take a breath and try again). In BM, it means 'nafas'.
- Anna took a deep breath and jumped down the building.
- Their oath is to fight until the final breath.
Whereas BREATHE is a verb that has few related meanings, such as; .. (BM: bernafas)
a) To inhale or expel air from the lungs. e.g.;
- Is she breathing?
- Practically all fish breathe through gills.
b) To allow gas or moisture to pass through. e.g.;
- Fabric is the most recommended material to make jerseys because it allows the skin to breathe better after a lot of sweating.
c) To impart (often used figuratively). e.g.;
- He breathed a new life into the project.
- He breathed a sigh of relief
