Hello! I'm confused about і, та, & й. What's the difference between them? The tips and notes section of the alphabet lesson says that there are rules dictating their use, but they say they're not going to teach us. But I'm one of the people who really doesn't like making grammar mistakes, and I really want to know the difference so I can use them correctly. Can someone please explain? Дякую!

As I know, word "Й" as "AND" usually uses, when the previous word ends with one of these 10 letters: "А, Е, Є, И, І, Ї, О, У, Ю, Я". Otherwise uses word "І". As the Ukrainian language called "the nightingale's language" (солов'їна мова) a lot of it rules are aimed at simplifying pronunciation.
