ae, oe ...?

Hi everyone,

If planets are (AAH) vowels, then (surely) conjunctions between planets are conjunctions between vowels - specifically, merged diphthongs like AE and OE? (Please accept my apologies for not knowing the correct generic term for these). :-/

Can any philologist here please refer me to some kind of history of these in print and/or in writing?

Thanks, .....Nick Pelling.....

PS: even knowing the right name for them would be a help. :-) "Schwa" and "epenthesis" are as far down as I go. :-/
