There are (fero, volo, nolo, eo), but they are few and are generally
treated as irregular. It doesn't seem that giving the second person is
ever useful except to flag the irregular verbs as such (it doesn't give
enough info to conjugate the irregular verbs). But all this is dependent
on my rusty memory, of course.
