ressortir (to go out again)
sentir
 (to smell)
se sentir (to feel)
mentir (to lie)
repartir (to leave again)


The verb répartir (to distribute) is NOT a derivative of partir, but shares its root with the word "repartition", and follows the regular -IR conjugation (see Conjugate regular -ir verbs in Le Présent (present tense)).
