Half or halve?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by pocoyo, Jun 12, 2011.

  1. I was wondering whether anyone could help me decide which word i use in this context?

    You might like to <u>half</u> an apple or quarter a pie.

    You might like to<u> half</u> food.

    Should I use half or halve in this context?

    Havle is the action if dividing a whole into two.
     
  3. Thank you very much. xxx

    Half is the noun.

    Halve is the verb.
