Could I have an example of &otrema; please?  Something along the lines of
zoölogy, but actually required?  Not that I doubt your knowledge of Dutch
but I would like to have it as a demonstration.

This is not quite right. All Latin vowels (a, e, i, o, u, y) can take the
(ä, ë, i, ö, ü in Dutch; ë, i, ü*, y** in French), and a, o, u can all be
umlauted (ä, ö, ü
in German).
