    quit/quitted

    Is it awkward to say, "She quitted her job."
    A friend of mine (nonnative speaker of English) told me that "quitted" is old-fashioned. Is that true?

    Whether it's "old-fashioned" or not, I'm not aware of it being used in North America.
    Maybe it is used somewhere, as it is recognized as one of the past tenses of quit. (the other is 'quit')
