•With the irregular verbs on the following pages, the stem changes in a way different to any of the stem changes we have previously looked at. The vowel may change differently and there may be a consonant change as well.

•With these verbs, the conjugations are also slightly different. Note that there are no accents on the first person ending or the 3rd person singular ending. In addition, if the changed stem ends in a ¨j,¨ there is no ¨i¨ in the 3rd person plural conjugation.

 tener (tuv-) querer (quis-)
 tuve tuvimos quise quisimos tuviste (tuvisteis) quisiste (quisisteis) tuvo tuvieron quiso quisieron
 decir (dij-)
 dije dijimos dijiste (dijisteis) dijo dijeron
