It is just like class 4, this class is rather small and has preserved a vowel length change between the singular and the plural forms of the past tense. But contrary to class 4, the vowel sound of the past participle is /eː/ and not /oː/. There are two variations:
The paradigm is:
|Past tense singular||/-ɑ-/||/-ɑ-/|
|Past tense plural||/-aː-/||/-aː-/|
For example: geven - gaf - gaven - gegeven
The verbs of the second variation are the so-called j-presents, which originally had a j-suffix in the present tense. For example: zitten - zat - zaten - gezeten
