Ya (Cyrillic)

Ya (Я я; italics: Я я) is a letter of the Cyrillic script, the civil script variant of Old Cyrillic Little Yus . Among modern Slavonic languages, it is used in East Slavic and Bulgarian languages. It is also used in the Cyrillic alphabets used by Mongolian and many Uralic, Caucasian and Turkic languages of the former Soviet Union.

Ya (kana)

, in hiragana, or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. Hiragana is written in three strokes, while the katakana is written in two. Both represent . Their shapes have origins in the character 也.

When small and preceded by an -i kana, this kana represents not a separate sound but a modification of that of another (see yōon).

や can be used by itself as a grammatical particle to connect words in a nonexhaustive list (see Japanese particles#ya).

Usage examples of "ya".

Iffen you give mesome of that-there chaw, I might git to talking and I might not try to bite ya.

However, what has already turned up is evidence for another system, and since this system yields less ambiguous forms, it is certainly the system I would recommend to writers anyhow: Independent possessive pronouns can be derived by adding the adjectival ending -ya to the corresponding dative forms!

Abstract nouns formed by means of the ending -ië from adjectives in -ya are seen to surrender the latter ending, e.

As discussed above, A-stems where the final -a is only part of a longer derivational ending (most often -ya or -ta) are much more common.
