The Proto-Indo-European origin of this class is not securely known. It contains verbs with the stem vowel -a-, except those where it is followed by a sonorant and another consonant (this combination was considered a diphthong in PIE and therefore belonged to class 7).

The sixth class is the smallest class and also the one which is the most threatened to be replaced by weak forms. There are two variations of this paradigm:
- /aː/ - /u/ - /u/ - /aː/, for example: dragen - droeg - droegen - gedragen
The past tense in 'oe' is already often replaced by a weak past tense, turning them into mixed verbs.
Note that there was originally a second variation of this paradigm, the so-called j-presents, with /ɛ/ or /eː/ as the present tense vowel. Verbs such as scheppen, heffen and zweren belonged to this group.
