A visual exploration of words that look the same, sound the same, or are otherwise easily confused. Updated weakly, on Sundaes.
I think you have these labeled incorrectly. Breach (like break) is to violate and breech is the wrong or back side.
Ah! I see your confusion, and perhaps I should have made better choices with my illustrations. The whale is meant to be BREACHING the water. But I chose its tail, its breech end. And the other one is correctly identifying the BREECH end of the rifle. But, yes, in this instance the rifle must be cracked open, breached, to access the breech. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for pointing it out.
