Excerpt from A History of Ablaut in Class I of the Strong Verbs: From Caxton to the End of the Elizabethan Period The list could be extended indefinitely, but it is eugh to show that in Elizabethan times we cant rely upon omission or retention of final -e, or upon the doubling of final consonants, as signs of quantity. I have treated this question in full because it affects so many of the strong verbs and I do t wish to have to repeat again and again that reliance is to be placed on particular forms.
