build/built[edit]

I have noticed recently a few instances of someone writing "build" when I think from the context they should have written "built". Example sentence: “By ‘not free of errors’ I mean blatant errors regarding physics and natural law, as well as gross misinterpretation of facts, due to an obvious lack of fundamental and basic understanding of the way nuclear reactors are build and operated.” (original at [1]; emphasis added.) Is this an accepted variant usage in some dialects of English, or a mildly-common error? 99.177.172.109 00:54, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

That's what I would call a 'typo'. JamesjiaoTC 01:04, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
