A vowel before a diphthong not beginning with the same sound generally contracts with the first vowel of the diphthong; the last vowel, if ι, is subscript (5): τι_μάει τι_μᾷ, τι_μάοιμεν τι_μῷμεν, λείπεαι λείπῃ, μεμνηοίμην μεμνῴμην.

a. But ε οι becomes οι: φιλέοι φιλοῖ; ο ει, ο become οι: δηλόει δηλοῖ, δηλόῃ δηλοῖ.
