Mixed verbs

CA19

 

Mixed verbs are irregular verbs that bear, however, characteristics of regular verbs.

 

They change their verb stem vowel in the Präteritum and in the past participle (Partizip II), but have the endings of regular verbs both in the Präteritum and in the past participle (Partizip II).
