Character Rendering for the transcription system Teuthonista

One of the most important and widely used transcription system for dialect studies

Dr. Johann Dirndorfer


Usage
Usage

This is a practical example of the linguistic transcription (Teuthonista) of dialect utterances in German speaking countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Northern Italy (Tyrolia), the entire South of Germany (including the whole of Bavaria and also (in our recent project) in Czech Republic).

Dr. Rosemarie Spannbauer-Pollmann,

Dr. Johann Dirndorfer


Example
Example

This simplified sample of vowels shows a part of the thousands of different varieties of combinations which are needed in our system. The printed version of this sample was created by means of a modified LaTEX program named TeuTEX. In the TeuTEX editor the first vowel shown here is encoded by /a+-/:a stands for the basic vowel, + for a nasal and – for quantity (length). The program combines (stacks) the different diacritical levels of nasality and length automatically. As you can see, we need at least two levels above the vowel, in many cases even three. Beneath the vowel only one level is needed.

Consonants
Consonants

This sample shows the use of consonants and their creation by the program TeuTEX. The code for the symbol circled in red is: s722

7 for the circumflex over the base s, 22 for the double stress under the lenis /sh/.

For the consonants we need one level above and one below the base letter.

Our needs 3
Our Needs (3)

  • We need diacritica to combine with the different widths and heights of letters (bases I to V). The diacritica need to be centered exactly above and below their respective bases.

  • We need diacritica that can be combined as readily and comfortably in Unicode as it could be done in TeuTEX (a program modification older than 15 years and running only under DOS).

Providing for these needs would give us an internationally accessible font for the publication of dialect linguistics texts dealing with every German speaking country or region.

Dr. Rosemarie Spannbauer-Pollmann,

Dr. Johann Dirndorfer


We thank you for attending to our needs and hope for a solution to our problems. If a solution cannot be found, a large community of linguists will have to work with individually adapted fonts. This would not allow the international public to ever have access to the millions of data-sets already existing at different institutes and universities and waiting to be published in proper form in the near future.
