Y is used as a shortening for "why"

Because, If you pronounce "Y" correctly it sounds like saying "Why"

This is often confused with "Ye" which means "yes"

Using "Y" as a shortening for "Yes" is gay as fuck and incorrect.
The Correct way!✔
Brian: Y are you wearing those ugly ass sneakers...

Mathew: I don't know.... Y u askin?

The Gay WAY! (Incorrect) X
Brian: Are your ass alright after having anal with your boyfriend?
Mathew: Y, its alright. forgot the lube last night though...

It's the letter Y, with two dots on top. I imagine that ÿ is pronounced differently from y, but if so, I don't know what the difference actually is.
Person 1: "Look, that ÿ has two dots on it!"
Person 2: "Must be a misprint."

1. Appears at first glance to be a regular "y", but upon closer inspection it contains to dots above it, which is not usual for a y in the english language. These dots give the appearance that it is somehow a deranged smiley face with it's lip hanging far below where its mouth ends.

2. The final definition on Urban Dictionary.
It is impossible to pronounce "ÿ" without first cutting out your tongue and eating hot coals.
