Subject: Query: Russian Phonology

Dear fellow linguists,

I am interested in Russian ya, ye, yi, yo, yu. What is their origin?
Why are they written with single characters? Are they analyzed as
single complex phonemes? I'd be grateful for answers rather than
references as I probably would not be able to check the references at
my present location.

Dear linguists:

Provided the anonimity of the subjects is mantained, may a supervisor
accept data obtained by candid or surreptitious recording? Thank you in
advance for the answers
