PRETERITE: Spell-Changing: i - y

Rules:

Verb endings AER/EER/OIR/OER change the normal I part of the ending to a Y in the third person. The pattern resembles a "sandal," so these verbs are also called "sandal" verbs. It also adds an accent over the letter I in the other forms.

i -> y

leer: to read

leí leímos
leíste leísteis
leyó leyeron

creer: to believe

creí creímos
creíste creísteis
