Apparently no gradation in the different tenses. The following verbs belong to this class:
|löbe to run,||löb||löbet.|
|sove to sleep,||sov||sovet.|
|græde to weep,||græd||grædt.|
D. hedde (N. hede) to be called, hed (D. also hedte), hedt. hugge to cut, N. hug (D. commonly huggede), hugget.
|komme to come,||kom||kommen.|
|falde to fall,||faldt||falden, faldt.|
|holde to hold,||holdt||holdt.|
To this class are also counted:
|faa to get,||fik||faaet (N. pron. fåt.)|
|gaa to go,||gik||gaet (N. pron. gåt.)|
Wholly irregular is: tie to be silent, taug (N. tiede, pron. tidde,) ptcp. tiet.
Note: None of these verbs form an impf. plural in -e.

- N. also graate.
- falden usually refers to a moral downfall; falden fra Himlen (himmelfalden) fallen from the skies, struck with amazement.
- holden is an adj. well-to-do.
