Assunto:  Weigh vs Weight
 
Mensagem:  When you add a sinker (chumbada) to your fishing line or net, you are weighting it.

When you want to see how much your child weighs, you puyt him on a scale and weigh him.

To weight = to add something heavy, something additional

To weigh = to measure the weight of something
