The Proto-Indo-European origin of this class is not securely known. It contains verbs with the stem vowel -a-, except those where it is followed by a sonorant and another consonant (this combination was considered a diphthong in PIE and therefore belonged to class 7).


The vowel pattern is:

Form Regular j-present
Present tense -a- -e-
Past singular ind. -ō- -ō-
Past general -ō- -ō-
Past participle -a- -a-
