Random English Stuff (Pt. 2)

Didn’t think I was gonna do another one of these right away, but I just wrote a thing about i-a-u verbs (sing-sang-sung, spin-span-spun, think-thank-thunk, as so on) and discovered a bunch of i-o-i_en words!   Rise-rose-risen Drive-drove-driven Ride-rode-ridden Stride-strode-stridden Strive-strove-striven Writ-wrote-written Dive-dove-diven You get the idea.
