Anyone know why Yah is spelled with a dagesh forte in the yohdh? That doesn't make any sense to me. (See Psa. 94:12)

I am not sure of the answer but wondering if it has to do with the accent. I found a couple brief references in Gesenius by running the grammar section of the PG on the verse reference. If you have other grammars you may find relevant materials. I also checked -- in vain -- for discussion in WBC, Baker, NICOT, and Hermeneia. Did not find any relevant material in the lexical entry in HALOT.
