Preterite: Part IV

In order to preserve the sound of the in\ufb01nitive, a number of verbs change
orthographically (spelling) in the preterite tense. The following changes occur in the \u201cyo\u201d
form only:

Verbs that end in-gar changeg togu
Verbs that end in-car changec toqu
Verbs that end in-zar changez toc

Here are three examples:

yo jugu\u00e9(jugar)
yo busqu\u00e9(buscar)
yo almorc\u00e9(almorzar)

Some common orthographic changing verbs for the preterite tense in these categories
are:
-GAR
-CAR
-ZAR
cegar
aparcar
almorzar
colgar

For verbs that end in -aer, -eer, -o\u00edr, and -oer, the \u00e9l/ella/usted forms use the ending \u201cy\u00f3\u201d (rather than i\u00f3) and the third person plural uses the ending \u201cyeron\u201d (rather than ieron). The remaining forms gain a written accent over the letter \u201ci.\u201d
