I know some of you have been waiting with bated breath for this third and final installment of the Ica-Russ saga. I’m not clear about just what bated breath is, but I’m pretty sure the phrase refers to the sort of breathing one does when in high anxiety in anticipation of something. Give me a second to see if my computer can clarify this...Well, that’s what I thought: “with bated breath--in anxious or excited anticipation.” But I still don’t know why those words mean that. Breath I get, but bated? Here’s something, “Bate (intransitive verb), beat wings…to beat the wings wildly or impatiently in an attempt to fly off a perch or a falconer’s fist when still attached by a leash.” That helps a little, but I would still not use bated in any sentence in which it is not immediately followed by the word breath.
