дышать - to breathe (16th January 2012)

дышать  [dy-SHAT'] (imperfective verb) – to breathe

Из-за загрязнения воздуха трудно было дышать. = It was difficult to breathe because of the pollution.

Мы дышим лёгкими. = We breathe with our lungs.


Even though this verb ends in "-ать", it's conjugated like "говорить":

я дышу, ты дышишь, он дышит, мы дышим, вы дышите, они дышат.
