The word splits could be better arranged but let me know what you think
about similarities with the vms.
Am I in the ballpark yet?
The Monkey oracle will tell you. :-)
However, I would perhaps caution that, even if you were to find a way of
enciphering text that matched the general statistical properties of
Voynichese, there's little chance that the two would be the same. Consider
the difference between English-like text (traditional Japanese consumer
electronics manuals, for example :-o ) and English!
I'm sure that the solution to the VMS will emerge from a mixture of
analytical (deconstructive / statistical) and model-based (constructive /
theoretical) - ie, going in both directions at the same time. So, make sure
you always keep one eye on the primary evidence itself - everything else is
supposition - and make sure you don't limit yourself to one direction only. :-)
