Yes, it's really great: http://www.soviseau.de/verben/en.htm
In Dutch the verb "erven" (to inherit) is very much on its way of
becoming a strong verb. The only correct forms are "erven - erfde -
geërfd", but many people have the past participle "georven".
Curiously, one never hears the corresponding past tense "ierf".
