Several contract verbs have stems in -α_, -η, -ω.

These are the verbs of 394, 398 with apparently irregular contraction, and δρῶ do; with presents made from -α_-yω, -η-yω, -ω-yω. Thus, from ζήω, ζήεις, ζήει and χρήομαι, χρήε (ς) αι, χρήεται come ζῶ, ζῇς, ζῇ and χρῶμαι, χρῇ, χρῆται; so διψῆν, πεινῆν from διψή-εν, πεινή-εν. ίδρόω, ῥι_γόω ( cross398) derive the forms in ω and from ἱδρω-, ῥι_γω- (ἱδρώω, ῥι_γώω from ἱδρως-yω, ῥι_γως-yω). The forms in -οω are from the weaker stems ἰδρος-, ῥι_γος-.
