I might be misunderstanding something here. But is it not the い-stem of the words and not the stem form?

@Candygaming The stem form of verbs refers to what is left of a verb after you conjugate to the ます-form and then remove ます. E.g.: 食べます , 会います , 行きます , 飲みます , 始めます , etc. やすい attaches to this stem to form this grammar point. As you can see, not all stem forms end in an い sound. Cheers!
