I have been told that combinations such as 
"oeu" --> "œu"


"oei" --> "œi"

So we could think of, 

 ("oei" ?œi)                            
 ("oeu" ?œu)                            

But I hesitate a little to have a *three* letter combination expanded,
that almost calls for a sort of abbrev mechanism.
