THE DIFFERENCE BTW LETTER "Y" AND "Ý"
The letter y with an accent on top ( ý ) was introduced by Uwagboe Ogieva on his new book "Edonaze" yet to be distributed and adopted by the educational board of Nigeria. First published online at http://otedo.com 2011. see General Rules
This he explained will help in the standadization and upgrading of the Edo grammar lexical and literal structure to meet the challenge of time.
The Difference btw letter "y" and "ý" was further explained to mean a solution to the dificulty in pronounciation and orthographical composition of the "ABD".
Examples of y with an accent on top " ý" are as in Uýinmwen - character or behaviour, ẹýen - snake, ẹýaen - albino, iýan - yam, ýanren - have, own, posses, acquire, aýon - drink or wine.
While words with y : "sayor" - put, turn in, pour "uyi" - respect, dignity, adore. "iyokuo" - soldiers or army. "iyobọ" - help, support, assistant, contribution.
Closer to the "ý" in English language is yanky. In spanish language is "ñ" as in España, niña or niño - girl or boy
