It took my breath away

Reading this from Yahoo! Finance practically took my breath away:

Maybe someone could breathe some life back into this article with a different word choice.

Hold your breath

I don’t know the woman who is quoted on Yahoo! Style, but I’ll bet dollars to donuts that she didn’t say “breath”:

Maybe the writer  was stressed. Maybe she was faced with a deadline galloping toward her. Next time she should just relax: take a deep breath and then breathe out.

Breathe new life into your writing

You know how this writer for Yahoo! Makers could breathe new life into her writing? She could learn the difference between the noun breath and the verb breathe:

Just breathe

Here’s some advice for this writer at Yahoo! Style: Relax. Take a deep breath. Exhale. Now just breathe. And make sure you don’t confuse the noun breath with the verb breathe:

Take a deep breath

Take a deep breath. Now breathe. That’s the advice I have for readers of Yahoo! Makers: Don’t get upset because there are so many professional writers, who presumably are college graduates, who have such a tenuous hold on the English language. Just be thankful you’re not one of them.

Still holding your breath?

Take a deep breath. Breathe in. Breathe out. Stay calm, this misspelling on Yahoo! DIY may pass:

Don’t hold your breath

As I live and breathe, I’ve never seen this mistake — until I read Yahoo! DIY:

If you expect an editor to correct this, don’t hold your breath. This was actually written by someone with the title of “editor.”

It would be a breath of fresh air

If the writers and editors at Yahoo! managed to go an entire day without using an incorrect word, that would be like a breath of fresh air. And we could all breathe easier. Could today be the day? No, not with this incorrect word on the home page of Yahoo! Travel:P

Take a deep breathe?

But for publishing an article, I recommend that the writer for Yahoo! Celebrity take a deep breath, breathe out slowly, and consult a dictionary:
