Stem-changing Verbs (boot verbs)

Stem changing verbs have changes that occur in the stem of the verb, in all forms EXCEPT for its nosotros(as) and vosootros(as) forms. To conjugate, you must identify the verb's verb stem, identify what kind of stem-changing verb it is, and write out all the forms. There are three types of stem-changing verbs: e to ie change, o to ue change, and e to i change.
