Freezed

Postby bnjtokyo » Wed Aug 10, 2016 12:20 am

From the NYTimes
"HCFCs are not currently widely used in the United States and production and import here were largely freezed last year."

Is "freeze" being regularised? None of the dictionaries I consulted offer "freezed" as an alternate to "frozen"

Over 4 years later and I can't recall ever having seen freezed. Then again, with editing in the descendant all over the internot, I'm not surprised. I saw a photo caption in the Christian Science Monitor that read, "Train Cars Laying on Their Side." UGH. :evil:
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
