PRESENT: Stem-Changing: o - ue


Stem-changing verbs (also called "boot verbs") have the same endings as regular verbs, but the stem of the verb changes on some of the pronouns only. The pattern of the change resembles a boot, hence the name "boot verb." In this pattern, the last "o" before the ending changes to "ue":
