Re: Voynich letters (corr)

I don't think so. Many of the split-G's seem to incorporate more than one
'word' as well.

On Feb 26th, I wrote :
The crossed Gallows cth/ckh/cph/cfh are not supposed to be EVER written in
the line initial position (only occurs 3 times in whole manuscript on f65v,
f76v, and f82v).

Secondly, and perhaps where several others would have occured - instead of
one of those specific Gallows - a Split-G exists. (This is still pure
speculation on my part that Split-G's are line-inital crossed-G's).

(But keep in mind that there are those label Split-G's too).
