|adnim||Technically 行けない is as ok as is いけない. But since it is part of a grammatical structure, the "directed walking" aspect of 行 is unpreferable, thus Hiragana-form is found more often.|| |
|Kurt Schmucker||This entry has a typo in it. Clearly the "形" is not part of the entry (unless it is completely silent. )|
I suspect that the "形" in "Gerund form (Ｖて形)" was made part of the entry by mistake.
て形 means te-form, so it doesn't seem to be a typo. Unless I'm missing something here.
