The first class is the largest and most regular class of Dutch strong verbs.
The paradigm is:
- /ɛɪ/ - /eː/ - /eː/ - /eː/, for example kijken - keek - keken - gekeken
The diphthong /ɛɪ/ is written with ij and there are but few verbs with an ij in the stem that are weak. On the other hand, verbs with ei are, as a rule, weak.
