I understand that J's "ae" came from some sort of umlaut process but why is the infinitive also affected? Or is it due to levelling?

Of course, I always like irregular verbs. I like "haefte" best. Is the "f" in some way derived from the "v" with devoicing due to the "t" of the ending?

Probably the most irregular verb in Kerno is "ir", _go_.
