benze (uncountable)

  1. (diving, prince-prints merger) Misspelling of bends.

Usage notes[edit]

This misspelling can arise among children in communities where swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving are popular activities, and where it is important to teach the dangers of decompression sickness even to the very young. The term bends may be introduced and spoken without its origin and exact meaning being explained. To uneducated ears, it may sound like a newly-learnt uncountable word, and can be misspelt benze.




  1. third-person singular present indicative of benzer
