English[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

pathe (third-person singular simple present pathes, present participle pathing, simple past and past participle pathed)

  1. 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.
