English[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

pathe

  1. Common misspelling of pave.

Usage notes[edit]

This misspelling derives from a mishearing of pave as "pathe" in association with path, in the same way bathe in associated with bath. This is an easy misspelling in accents where /v/ and /ð/ are either merged, or whose speakers only weakly distinguish the sounds in context.


Jèrriais[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French paire, from Latin paria (equals), neuter plural of pār.

Noun[edit]

pathe f (plural pathes)

  1. pair
