German MOR

We are using German MOR to analyze samples from learners who may follow
different spelling conventions with regard to umlauts, sharp s, etc.  Thus,
we need to

recognize both ‘Zwölf’ and ‘Zwoelf’ or ‘groߒ  and ‘gross‘, as examples. Of
course, we could put both forms in the lexicon, but it would be nice to
geneate the second form by rule.

However, as I read the Clan Manuel, once an Arule has been applied to the
stem, no other Arules can apply, so words with both ‘ö’ and ‘ß’ would not be
processed correctly. Am I missing something here, or is there some other way
to deal with this issue?
