  • Q:

    What are some idioms people often misunderstand?

    A:

    There are some idiomatic expressions that people misuse due to the existence of a similar or homophonic word that either seems to make more sense or is more common; these include saying "wait with baited breath" instead of "wait with bated breath" or "chomping at the bit" instead of "champing at the bit." In the case of "wait with baited breath," the mistake is that the word "baited" implies a condition of being taunted or teased, while "bated" describes a condition of something being halted or stopped. Saying "waiting with bated breath" is more accurate because it implies that someone is holding their breath in anticipation.
