Verbs where the ablaut vowel was followed by a sonorant (m, n, l, r) but no other consonant in Proto-Indo-European.


Class 4 has become almost indistinguishable from the second type of class 3 strong verb (with original -e-) in Swedish. The only distinction is the vowel length, which is determined by the number of consonants following the vowel. Those verbs with a long vowel (one consonant after the vowel), which are mostly original class 4 verbs, have been placed in this category.

The vowel pattern is:

Form Vowel
Present tense -e/ä-
Past tense -a-
Supine -u-
