Hi friends,

I have read a novel it is :-

The morning air off Mojave in the winter is as clean as you will ever breath in Los Angles. It carries the taste of promise on it..
(A person saying it is a lawyer)


Can anyone explain the meaning of the bold sentence.

The morning air off Mojave in the winter is as clean as you will ever breath in Los Angles.

Shouldn't the bold word be 'breathe'?

Yes. Also "It carries the taste of promise on in it."
