My notes: list of Dutch verbs

Hi! since I've started studing Dutch I've been taking and organizing notes of all I had learnt. It is helping me a lot and I though that maybe could be useful for someone else, so I share with you a couple of summaries I made of mixed verbs (gemengde werkwoorden) and strong verbs (sterke werkwoorden). Not all of them are in the tables but I think the most common are. Also, I really appreciate if you have any suggestion, any important verb to add or if you notice any mistake (I tried to write the notes in dutch according to some videos but I have no idea of how to put together the sentences properly). And I can upload more if you like. Hope that this can help you! :)

PS: I also appreciate the corrections on my English grammar, because I'm Spanish and I make a lot of mistakes yet.

Wow great lists!

BTW verbs with the same root are all conjugated the same way, e.g.: komen, opkomen, afkomen, aankomen, inkomen, bijkomen, voorkomen, terugkomen

Duedelue, pardon my mis-directed comment I meant to encourage Elidrila (see above) on her English composition. From what I have seen, your English is far more advanced. I too have a fascination with languages particularly the ancestral commonality of German, Dutch and English. You seem to be in the middle of a lot of interesting discussions and you are gathering followers like my fleece jacket picks up cat hairs! Warum nicht?, du hast ein mehr.

The last word, "yet", is not right. Say "I still make a lot of mistakes", or "I as of yet make..."

They seem to be pretty nice charts, thank you!

Well, if you'd like corrections on your English grammar, I'll go ahead and help you out. :) I'm assuming the little spelling errors were just typos, so I'm not pointing them out. Corrections are in italics. :)

Thanks! :)

Only one thing: isn't it correct to say both "learnt" and "learned"?

Yes, it's okay to say both learnt and learned. Mainly I was mentioning the "have" rather than "had" there to be consistent with the rest of your sentence's wording. :) Good catch!

Eledrila,

This all illustrates the dilemma of learning another language, particularly English. Chances are, none of us will ever fool anyone into believing that we are native speakers in another language. Nevertheless we push on regardless, hoping to eliminate the most egregious boorishisms (gross failures) from our spoken and written attempts in another language. Keep on pitching (American for "keep trying") most native speakers are willing to "cut you some slack" (American, for "look the other way") as you develop your skills. Getting feedback is a necessary part of language mastery. I have a level 10 in Spanish yet I can recognize barely 50 percent of the words used in Spanish newspapers and magazines. By the way, I think that I would be inclined to say " I hope this is helpful" English speakers generally include the personal pronoun with the verb, in Spanish its use seems to be more of an option. If you want nitpicking, you have come to the right place.

Uh, Fitly,

I see that you have managed to incorporate italics into your text. Can this be done directly in this format or do you need to compose text somewhere else and paste it to this screen? The lack of alternative character sets is particularly vexing in German and Spanish. I can imagine it to be a problem in French as well. :{

Oh wow! I don't have any idea how to understand these lists (strong verbs? weak verbs? lol I'm too early in my Dutch Tree to understand anything but the present tense), but I can already tell they will be IMMENSELY helpful in the future. :) Bedank!!
