Oh okay, I think I understand. I had thought you meant change as in the verb in it's entirety changes, Kanji included. So you just mean that it doesn't always mean replacing γ‚‹ with a suffix for that specific tense (at least not always)

Thanks a lot! Really helped out. A lot of the sources I was searching on tense were inconclusive , just, puzzling and unclear.

Oh I knew that the γ‚‹ would be edited out in some way or another, like when adding ます. So your saying that sometimes when the tense changes so does the stem verb, like the Kanji/Kanji+following kana changes? Could you give me an example because that would be very helpful. Does this also mean that different verbs might have a different kana sufix for the same tense?
