#GrammarSeries- The difference between Breath and Breathe

Medieval (5)

Do you know that there is a marked difference between the word Breath and Breathe? It is really simple. 

Breath is a noun. It is the air taken into the lungs and then let out.

Example: The instructor in my class kept on saying, “Take a deep breath” until the end of the session.

On the other hand, ‘Breathe’ is a verb. It is the act of inhaling and exhaling.

Example: “Stop hyperventilating and just breathe,” she said.
