History

The Cyrillic letter ј was introduced in the 1818 Serbian dictionary of Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, adopted on the basis of the Latin letter j.[1] Karadžić had previously used the letter і instead to represent the same sound.

Usage

Altai voiced postalveolar affricate /dʒ/

Kildin Sami voiceless palatal approximant /j̊/ the letter Short I with tail (Ҋ ҋ) is also used
Macedonian /j/ Prior to the development of the modern Macedonian alphabet in 1944-45, Macedonian authors used either І і or Й й.[2]
Serbian /j/ in Vuk Karadžić's alphabet, the letter Je replaced the traditional letter Short I (Й й), which invited accusations of submission to the Latin script and Catholic Church (in Austria) from the Orthodox clergy
