Letter[edit]

ÿ lower case (upper case Ÿ)

  1. The letter y with a diaeresis, usually used in old or handwritten texts as a ligature for Dutch or Afrikaans ij: lÿs = lijs, lijst (list), and also in rare French names as variant of ï, like Louÿs or L'Haÿ-les-Roses, indicating that the ÿ is to be pronounced separately.
