Hola Emma,

I have always understood semi regular as meaning that the actual endings of the conjugations are regular, but there are irregularities in the body or stem of the verb. In the case of corregir, the endings o, es, e, imos, ís and en are all typical of ir verbs. The irregularity comes with the “e” being replaced by the “i” with the exceptions mentioned in the text, and the “j’ replacing the “g” in the first person singular. 

Inma may clarify this further. Saludos. John

Hola Emma

Yes, exactly. As John said, there are verbs that undergo changes in some of their conjugations - these changes may happen in the endings or their stem (or both). The semi-regular verbs are those that only have the irregularity in their stem, a change of vowel or a change of consonant. 

Saludos
