Loathe is a verb meaning

to hate someone or something

Example:

From an early age the brothers have loathed each other.

Loath is an adjective meaning

to be unwilling to do something

Example:

I'm loath to spend it all at once.

To summarize, the two words are used in different parts of the sentence, and the verb (loathe) expresses a much stronger negative emotion compared to the adjective (loath).

  • Wow. I have never, ever heard of loath before. The more you know. – James Jul 18 at 14:45
