I know it's tiresome and irritating to be pedantic and picky but I just can't help it.

The noun is breath
The verb is breathe

They're pronounced differently and they're spelt differently.

English spelling has some strange features, hasn't it? It would be easier if these words were spelt as spoken, as breth and breethe.

For some reason writing breathe as breath is very, very common.

Will it help me to breathe to my right side? Probably not.
