Oh, I think I see where the misunderstanding may have been. I said
"It" couldn't figure those out, meaning the script; one of them isn't
a word at all, another one is a place name (and therefore not in its
dictionary), and one happened to be a form of the word that it didn't
have (as it had the equivalent with a 'z'), and I wasn't able to
figure it out myself either. But I grokked the university's name no
trouble. No other university has that many y's and so few other
vowels. :)
