- A ligature in Dutch that is not officially part of the Dutch alphabet; however, it is capitalized as if it were one.
- In typing, the combination of i and j is commonly used. In handwriting, it is mostly written as ÿ.
- Being a single letter, ĳ has to be capitalized as Ĳ. For example: Ĳmuiden.
- Dutch dictionaries sort ĳ as the combination of i and j, while Dutch phonebooks sort ĳ together with y.
- In certain dialects, the sound ij has retained its original long /i:/ pronunciation. Compare wijf and wief.
