How to write oe attached (œ "glued")

Do you want to write tied œ as in following french words :  mœurs ("mores"), cœur ("heart"), sœur ("sister"), œuf ("egg"), bœuf ("beef", "steer") ?

All you have to do is make a key combination as described below.

To make this symbol in a word processor or in Word:

  • Keep the Alt key pressed (just to the left of the Space bar) then type the numbers 0 1 5 6  (0156)" and finally release the Alt  key . The "œ" sign will then be displayed.
  • Same method to type the attached oe in uppercase, type Alt + 0 1 4 0 (Alt + 0140) -> " Œ "

To do the attached oe on an Apple / Mac computer:

Hold down the Alt ⌥ key and then press the "o" key. Hold down Alt ⌥ + Shift ⇧ then "o" if you want the letter to be in uppercase.

To write the attached oe on an Android smartphone or on an Iphone:

Hold down the "o" key on your keyboard and select the "œ" symbol from the drop-down list.
