Doric has -τι for -σι, -μες for -μεν, -ντι in 3 pl., and -τα_ν, -σθα_ν, -μα_ν for -την, -σθην, -μην. -τα_ν, -σθα_ν, -μα_ν are also Aeolic.

The close agreement between Greek and Sanskrit may be illustrated by the inflection of Old Greek and Doric φα_μί say, Skt. bhā´mi shine, ἔφερον, Skt. ábharam bore.
