One suggestion that comes to mind is an abbrev-table.  You could setup
abbrevs like ".G" and ".8" (but you don't have to use any prefix as ".").
The user can program with abbrev-mode turned on or he can expand
abbrevs manually ("C-x '").

The "prefix" for the abbrevs need not to have word constituent syntax.
You can e.g. use

    (abbrev-table-put apl-abbrev-table

to allow for abbrevs beginnig with a comma (",").
