She suicided last night. She committed suicide last night. What is correct? Are both correct?

The yahoo spell checker identified "suicided" as a wrong spelling. The big question is: what country uses this form? And why does dictionary.com and merrriamwebster.com list suicide as a verb. My British and Canadian dictionaries list it only as a noun. Does anyone have any idea?

    She committed suicide should be right because suicided may be a word but I think you would use it as a last resort

    Maybe in latin backround, latin based speaking countries it is correct, since in spanish suicide it is a verb, I've commited the same mistake and being corrected again and again.

    It's supposed to be

    she commited suicide

    or that's what I've been told.

    human beings at the instant think of slightly pill can resolve each thing. do not blame the Lunesta organization, all of us know they're money hungry. If human beings will stop counting on medicine to unravel each thing stuff like this does not take place. And in case you have not found out, there are area outcomes like that to very almost ever drug that tampers with the techniques. i'm particular the well being care expert did not placed a gun to absolutely everyone's head and tell them to make her take Lunesta. so which you would be able to not blame them... in spite of the shown fact that, I do wish you're niece seems ok. basically pray. that's all i will inform you. God bless.
