Hola Dennis

I'm afraid not. We tend to make lists of verbs that undergo some sort of irregularity.

To name some of those verbs that have an -o in the stem and don't change to -ue, you have for example:

Cortar - to cut

Notar - to realise

Frotar - to scrub

Votar - to vote

Engordar - to get fat

Coser - to sew

Comer - to eat

Coger - to take

Poner - to put
