Here are a few examples: verzinnen (to make up), vergeten (to forget), gebeuren (to happen). The problem is that for these words, the root is not an existing word in itself, so that semantic differentiation can not be activated.

The first text in the next chapter also has quite a few samples of these kinds of words.
