2.2 Verbal inflection

The verbal system of Saterland Frisian – and related languages – is complicated. Three topics are dedicated to this subject. The first is about the general categories that are relevant to the inflection of verbs.

The other topics directly deal with verbal inflection itself. Most Saterland Frisian verbs are inflected in a regular manner, although it should be kept in mind that two different classes of weak verbs can be distinguished.

The longest topic is on the verbs that inflect in an irregular manner. These consist of the traditional strong verbs, but Frisian also has a considerable stock of irregular weak verbs.
