      it's because didnt base tengwar on Quenya, but in
      general elvish phonology, so that the tengwar could be
      adapted in any language...

      he then adapted Quenya to them, but the adaptation was
      not perfect (not as sindarin or westron) because of
      Quenya's strict rules

      no, yanta and anna have no relation.. my theory is
      that yanta was used as consonantal y while anna was
      used for a carrier and/or to show early-lost initial
      g- sound (eg. alda from galada or alasse from galasse)

      tyelpetema was then for palatalised sounds
