Recently in a post, I explained that many people mistakenly think that the verb "to cast" has a different past tense. It doesn't. The reverse is true of the verb "to fit". They think that it doesn't change. But it does:
Today the shoe fits; yesterday it fitted; in the past it has fitted.
In the Life section of today's Globe and Mail, we read:
The dress looked great on the hanger. It even fit.
This should read:
The dress looked great on the hanger. It even fitted.
