verbs: WEAK CLASS 2
The present participle is inflected like an adjective in the comparative grade; the perfect participle like a regular adjective.
The verbs of this class are (like those of class 3) either denominative or causative. The denominatives are derived from a- and ô-stem nouns and adjectives using the suffix -je/jo- (hygg-ja 'think' < hug-jan derived from hugr 'mind' < hug-az); the causatives from strong verbs using the suffix -eie/eio- (set-ja 'put' < sat-jan < sod-eio-nom derived from sit-ja 'sit' < sit-jan < sed-jo-nom).
