Breach vs Breech

Breach vs Breech. The thieves loaded their breech-loading guns and breached the premises. Don’t let errors breach your writing, use ErrNET copyediting!

Breach is the act or a result of breaking or rupturing; to break or act contrary to (a law, promise, etc.).

Breech is the part of a firearm at the rear of the barrel; the hinder or lower part of anything.

Breech is rarely used in English writing, however it is a common misspelling of the much more common word breach. This common error occurs because of the identical pronunciations and similar spellings of “breach” and “breech”. Shoot your way out of this common trap with a breech-loading gun or ErrNET proofreading technology, the more civilized, non-violent solution.
