It can be, though I get the impression that it's got a stronger sense of straightening built into it.

That is an interesting one as well, however you are more likely to need oler then erguirse. Well, kudos for remembering the conjugation of oler.

it is awesome to think that native spanish people as me are able to remeber all those conjugations. but if you want a tricky verb try yacer, mainly the first person in present, almost nobody who is native can say it, but yeah nobody uses it daily in real life

Gracias, pero en mi mensaje (en inglés) quería que no pusieras los conjugaciones en el hilo y yo ya había puesto un enlace por los conjugaciones. Es que quería la gente pensarlo un poco antes de buscarlo.
