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).[edit]

The vowel pattern is:

Form Vowel
Present tense -a-
Present tense 2nd/3rd sg. -a/e-
Past singular ind. -ō-
Past general -ō-
Past participle -a-
