Sentences with j: examples and rules of use

Initially, the letter j in the Latin alphabet was a variation of the shape of the «i», only more elongated. It was in the 16th century when this consonant began to be given more value, until it became the last letter to be entered into the modern Latin alphabet. Its name «jota» comes from the Latin burbotsound given to the ninth Greek character.

Also, currently the «j» has a moderately low frequency in the Spanish language. It appears in only 5,106 words, which indicates an average of 0.64% of the time. The most used combination that includes said consonant is «ja», which is present in 1,220 words, only 0.36%.

The next most frequent syllable is “je”, and it is in 1,012 words (0.30%). In that order, “jo” continues, with 795 (0.23%) appearances; then «jar», with 368 times (0.11%); «ju», with 335 (0.10%); and finally “ji”, with 310 (0.09).
