what does the > symbol mean when used in e>ie, e>i, etc?
The symbol shows you how the vowels change.
e>i means the e in the infinitive of the verb changes to an i in the conjugated verb.
So mentir becomes mintiendo in the gerundio.
Inma - When saying: "2. Some verbs with an e > i or e > ie stem change in El Presente swap the -e in the infinitive for an -i" [in the gerund], would it be worth mentioning a few e>i or e>ie verbs which do not make that swap?) ... Similarly in 3: is this rule best applied to 'ir' and 'er' verbs?
