Verbs that retained their reduplication in the past tense in Proto-Germanic. The seventh class was originally a collection of verbs from the other six classes that exhibited reduplication. Consequently, the sound of the present tense can vary but it is always the same as that of the past participle.
In German, as in almost all other Germanic languages, a seventh ablaut pattern was formed instead.
|Form||Pattern 1||Pattern 2|
|Past singular ind.||-?- + umlaut||-ä-|
