I’m mixing up my breath’s & breathe’s again! Here, a quick place to refer…

I easily get muddled between these two so I sound the words out — breath and breathe. For some reason I decided to pronounce the words wrong and so totally got muddled up. I had the ‘e’ in the middle much longer and the one on the end silent. I figured, English is strange, this is correct. It isn’t. Oh, no. Not one bit.

Silly Tomos.

Breath — the air inhaled / exhaled.

Breathe — inhale / exhale.

You can ‘breathed’ but not ‘breath-ed’.

Now I know! (Until I get muddled again.)
