Meaning of OE

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\[OE]\ ([=e]),
a diphthong, employed in the Latin language, and thence in
the English language, as the representative of the Greek
diphthong oi. In many words in common use, e alone stands
instead of [oe]. Classicists prefer to write the diphthong oe
separate in Latin words.
