'''ゐ''', in [[hiragana]], or '''ヰ''' in [[katakana]], is an obsolete Japanese [[kana]], each of which represent one [[Mora (linguistics)|mora]]. It is presumed that ゐ represented {{Audio-IPA|Wi_(Japanese)Ja-Wi.oggoga|/ɰi/}} and that ゐ and い indicated different pronunciations until somewhere between the [[Kamakura period]] and the [[Taishō period]] when they both came to denote {{IPA|/i/}}. This kana was deemed obsolete in 1946, and replaced with [[I (kana)|い and イ]]. It is now rare in everyday usage. In fact, in [[onomatopoeia]] and foreign words, the katakana form ウィ (U-[small-i]) is preferred.
 
One modern-day usage of this kana is the Japanese spelling of [[Black Nikka|Nikka Whiskey]], which is written "ニッカウヰスキー" (nikka uwisukī). Also, the name of the comedy duo [[Yoiko]] is written "よゐこ" (yowiko).
