Stop Verbs.—Many verb stems end in a stop (or mute) consonant.

The present is formed either from the simple verb-stem, as in πλέκ-ω weave, or by the addition of τ or y (y) to the verb-stem, as in βλάπτω (βλαβ-) injure, φυλάττω (φυλακ-yω) guard. All tenses except the present and imperfect are formed without the addition of τ or to the verb-stem; thus, βλάψω from βλαβ-ς-ω, φυλάξω from φυλακ-ς-ω.
