STRONG VERBS CLASS VII - REDUPLICATED VERBS
I'm still working on this page!
These verbs are put in the same class mainly because they don't fit into the others, not because they look alike.
These verbs still had their reduplication syllable in proto-germanic, and can even be seen in gothic haíháit 'was called' from háitan 'be called', faífald 'fell' from faldan 'fall', laílôt 'allowed' from lâtan 'allow' &c. In north and west germanic the reduplication was simplified and PGerm. *hehait, *fefald and *lelôt became *hêt, *fêll and *lêt.
For the origin of the inflexional endings, see the "strong endings" page.
