rent[edit]

A claim is made that "rent" can be used in spoken language for the past tense and past participle of "to rent". Any evidence for this, or is this just an error (like "text" being used as the past tense of "to text" instead of "texted", as if the infinitive were "to tex", as in "I text you my address yesterday.")? — Paul G 16:04, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I believe one can rent something that one does not occupy[edit]

He rented the bicycle for his daughter.

That’s correct, at least in the U.S. You can rent bicycles, motorcycles, automobiles, U-haul trailers, storage bins, couches, chainsaws, airplanes, televisions, computers, canoes, and, at least as a figure of speech, beer, chili, and certeain other foods. —Stephen 17:07, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

British/Commonwealth English[edit]

I think a usage note should be made that explains that British English prefers the verb hire instead of rent in many contexts.--达伟 13:12, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
