Translation:

Pneo is Greek for Latin flo {"to blow"} and spiro {"to breathe"}. Pnen is in Latin alare or spirare {both meaning "to breathe”}.


Commentary:

Greek πνέω /pnéō/ or πνέιω /pnéiō/ is 1st sg. pres. indic. act. of "to blow (of wind, air)" but also "to breathe"; and πνεῖν /pneîn/ is inf. pres. act. of the same verb.

Latin flare means "to blow" and (h)alare and spirare {"to breathe; exhale"}.
