Mouth-breathing

Nature:

Mouth breathing refers to the act of breathing through the mouth (as a temporary backup system) if there is an obstruction to breathing through the nose, which is the designated breathing organ for the human body. Chronic mouth breathing is usually associated with illness. The term "mouth-breather" developed a pejorative meaning within English slang.
