Aside from Dutch, where it's something of an archaism, are there any languages which use this?

The letters u and y in succession? Well yeah, most languages that use both <u> and <y>, I assume. Or specifically as a digraph to indicate a diphthong or vowel (i.e. both letters belong to the same syllable)? Well yeah, obviously, <y> is a really common way to indicate /j/, which is a common second element of diphthongs.

To give some concrete examples:
English: "guy"
Spanish: "muy"
Turkish: "uygulama"
Vietnamese: "ruy-băng"
Cebuano: "luyluy"
Quechua: "asuy"
etc.

Obvious, really, if you put it that way. More restrictively: are there phonemic diphthongs written <uy>, not just sequences of /u/ + /j/?

Vietnamese seems to use it to distinguish/ wi/ from /uj/..
That is, {uy } spells /wi/, because Y is a vowel. {W}Is not used.

I thought <uy> in Vietnamese was supposed to be [y]. :o

{Yippie cuyay} &{ van Nuys} are 2 othe r examples,though both probably generalized from other English words.
Edit: well, I've *seen* it spelled{ cuyay},so it must have seemed tp be the most logical spelling for someone.
Edit2: the Cuyahoga river probably helped with that.
