Why Buffer ?

In the word

"Gitmezmiydiniz" meaning "Didn´t you used to go ? "

Why is there a "y" buffer. I don´t understand its use here, as it is not followed by a vowel.

Thanks

Gitmez miydiniz?

mi (question tag) + idi (past tense) + niz (you-formal/plural) = miydiniz

Thanks for the explanation and the useful link. I see that the "i" of idi is mutated to a y so that there are not two i´s together.
