    Payed/Paid

    Is it Payed or Paid, or is only one acceptable?

    Re: Payed/Paid

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    My dictionary shows payed as an archaic (old-fashioned) word.
    This means you should use paid.

    But this is interesting:
    I pay - I paid.
    I play - I played.

    Funny, I never paid attention to that

    Cheers!
