German words in which only one vowel is different. Words like "lieben" and "leben" have only one vowel that is different (when pronounced). Please, give me some more examples of such word pairs where only these two vowels (E and I) replace each other (If there are any) Also if there are any such word pairs but with vowels O and U, please tell me those as well.

Thank you! I also found words "dehnen" and "dienen"
Denken und danken. Fu"llen und fu"hlen. Haben und heben. Sehen und sagen. That's all I can think of now- it's been quite a while. Sorry I can't do the umlaut.
