Glastonbury University Transcription System
The Glastonbury University Transcription System (GUTS) is an romanization system for the Albic languages, developed (intrafictionally) by linguists of Glastonbury University (extrafictionally) by Jörg Rhiemeier. The purpose of this system is to provide transcription symbols from which an orthography for each language can be created. The GUTS is an extended version of the orthography of Avalonian.
The author has abandoned it again, however, because it is ugly and inconvenient.
- Aspiration is marked by an apostrophe following (for postaspiration) or preceding (for preaspiration) the consonant symbol, e.g. p'.
- Affricates are written by their components, e.g. ts.
Long vowels are marked with an acute á; in languages and dialects that distinguish thrusting and slipping tone, an acute marks thrusting tone and a circumflex â marks slipping tone.
