  1. simple past tense and past participle of cost
    We costed the project at $1,000,000. (simple past tense)
    We've costed the project at £1,000,000. (past participle)

Usage notes[edit]

  • The only non-proscribed use is in the sense of "to give a cost to". Where Standard English is expected, use cost instead for non-specialized past-tense and past-participle uses such as answering the question "How much did it cost?"
  • Occasionally replaced with noun or verb forms of price, where commonly accepted, as in, "The event's hosting was priced at $1,000,000."


costed (not comparable)

  1. Having a specified (type of) cost
    This was a badly costed project.
