OE (toe) Sound Word List
The /oe/ sound has seven spellings, o (go), oa (goat), oe (toe), o-e (bone), ow (blow), ou (soul), and ough (dough). The most common spelling, o-e, is a split-vowel spelling where the ending consonant sound is inserted at the dash mark.
The "oa" and "ou" spellings are found only in the middle of one-syllable words. The "oe" and the "ow" spellings are usually endings, but not in all cases (poem, bowl). This list is useful for locating simple words that have a common spelling of the /oe/ sound, such as the "oa" in cloak, foam, and soap, because the list is organized by the vowel spellings.
