"When you need to breathe, you take a breath."

"'Breathe' is the verb, 'breath' the noun."

Just one of the many wonderful things you'll be more apt to remember should you take a flyer on Paul Brians' 2008 book, "Common Errors in English Usage, 2nd Edition."


Count me in.

A request for readers who email me and/or comment: PLEASE give me a valid email address if you'd like me to respond directly. I cannot tell you how frustrating it is when I compose a detailed, personal reply, email it to the commenter's address, and get back "UNDELIVERABLE."

This happens on average once a day.
