>>I'm curious...have any of you folks noted the use of "paid" starting to die
out in favor of "payed"? If both forms are accepatable, under what
circumstances would you use one or the other? For example, "I paid/payed
attention," "I paid/payed the fine."<<

I had never seen the form "payed" until a recent post to this list, which I
assumed was a simple typo.

If I saw "payed" in a more formal forum, I would assume I was dealing with
someone of limited literacy. JMHO.
