Weak class 4?
@CodeCat: Are you sure about the present tense alternating between -nō-/-na- and conjugated as an athematic verb? In Gothic it conjugates as an ordinary thematic strong verb. I don't have my copy of Ringe "From PIE to Proto-Germanic" handy but he makes some pretty definite statements that imply that the conjugation is no longer considered uncertain, and that it's now understand that they conjugated as strong verbs, although I can't say for sure whether he says thematic strong verb (as Gothic would imply) or athematic verb (as you have given it). Where did you get your verb tables from?
- Ringe 2006 mostly. I don't remember what he says exactly about class 4 but it's very tentative in any case. The alternation isn't attested but he suggests it so that he can derive a proper PIE origin for the class. In other words, the alternation is what would be expected.
