Heard a newsreader on the state owned national broadcaster use "forfeit" in a manner that set me wondering. Whilst standards have slipped over the years, the majority of us Aussies expect the newsreaders on this station to use the Queen's English.

He said, "Mr so-n-so forfeit the goods to the Crown last April."

The unwashed such as myself would've said, "...forfeited the goods..."

Who's correct?
