Re: Sukhotin's Algorithm

If I saw that text I would rather easily identify prst as finger because
perst is the Old Slavonic for finger, and skrz as through because skroz'
is Ukrainian for through (Russian analog is skvoz') . However I would be
puzzled by krk and strch since I cannot figure any analogs to them in
Russian, Ukrainian or Old Slavonic. Nape of the neck can be referred to
in a Russian-Ukrainian slang (not in the literary lang) as zakorki,
which seems to have the root like the Polish kark. Mark
