I stumbled upon the following text:

Motor starting circuits In the table above is mentioned which electrical typical has to be used for the motor starting circuits. The attached electrical typicals (see ...) have to be respected by the contractor.

Could you explain what does "electrical typicals" mean? It looks like a noun but google and wiktionary only give explanations for adjective.

    I believe it is written by somebody who is not a native English speaker. My guess is that typical is a bad translation from another language, and should be translated as standard. – Colin Fine Feb 17 '14 at 22:59

    This question appears to be off-topic because I do not believe the cited text is valid English from a native speaker. – FumbleFingers Feb 18 '14 at 0:52
  • @FumbleFingers There was a chance that it's some kind of technical jargon, because I've seen this phrase before in some job applications from US and Canada. – Andrei Petrenko Feb 18 '14 at 9:54
  • @Andrei: Nah - there was never any chance of that, given how many other elements within OP's cited text are quite obviously ungrammatical forms typical of a non-native speaker. – FumbleFingers Feb 18 '14 at 15:45
