There are several verbs ending in eguir where the stem changes in the present tense. (for example -- seguir becomes sigo, siges, ...) Does this happen for all verbs ending in eguir or are there examples where the e does not change in the stem.
George - I carried out a detailed investigation a while ago - see "Spanish '-ir' verbs" at http://dlmcn.com/ir_verbs.html - and can confirm that all '-eguir' verbs do indeed follow that same pattern - as too do all verbs ending in '-etir', '-egir', '-edir', and '-eir' [plus a few others].
On the other hand, all '-ertir', '-erir' and '-entir' verbs change the "e" to "ie" when conjugating their present tense...
... while three '-ergir' verbs retain the "e", making no vowel-change in the stem.
