These verbs have a few common verbs, which alternate vowels between e-a-e.  The 'a' is long, and you'll notice in an open single syllable it's doubled, while in the two-syllable or closed syllable forms, it's only 1 vowel.

Example: spreken

present sg. - pl.
Ic spreke wiȝ sprek
þu sprikst ȝiȝ sprek
he/scie/it sprik hje sprek
past sg. - pl.
Ic spraak wiȝ spraken
þu sprakst ȝiȝ spraken

present perfect sg. - pl.
