Okay, what's with the "Baited" Breath

[Post New]by jEMSW on Mar 17, 17 11:03 AM
Just wondering if anyone knows what they are baiting there breath with.

Chocolate perhaps??

Just curious as to whether, or not, it's a clue of some sort.

Nah. It's just a spelling error that they don't think is worth fixing. Some of the spelling errors are not actually errors because some English words have different spellings in different countries. But not this one, as far as I know.

Have fun stormin' the castle!

It is NOT a spelling error, Elephant Games is located in Russia, and that is how Russia spell the word, I looked it up.

I was always told the response to "small things amuse small minds" was:

"Bigger fools watch on"

Or was it "good things come in small packages - but so does arsenic"?

One of my Nanna's favourite sayings was "As silly as a cartload of maggots!"

Don't ask.

How about "as smart as a box of rocks"?

English English version: "Simple things for simple minds"!
But that is not always a bad thing!

Oh, cool! Thanks for posting, MaryCricket. I'm a language geek, sort of. I love to learn new things about how language works.

Have fun stormin' the castle!

Be that as it may, the word 'baited', according to the dictionary means, "to put a piece of food on (a hook) or in (a trap) in order to attract and catch fish or animals". It can also refer: to trying to make (someone) angry by using criticism, insults, taunts, teasing, etc.

Who knows, perhaps that is what they actually mean.

Otherwise, "waiting with bated (read: abated) breath, you're so eager, anxious, excited, or frightened that you're almost holding your breath."

If this is what is meant then the spelling used in the game is incorrect. As the English language is rather confusing. There are many words pronounced the same but have different spellings, & different meanings. Even people born in countries, where English is the major language, make mistakes.
