2 main problems here:
a) the "italian" or "french" words or bits are IMO too short to be
significative. As a matter of facts, the words "del" or "rosa" (which indeed
is both Italian or Latin) could be just random. Only more frequent, more
complex words could prove this theory/method.
b) we're talking about XV century language, which was very different in
syntax, grammar and spelling. Being Italian and having followed some
university course, I could recognize and understand it, but I'm not an
expert at all. So, there could be any kind of abbreviation, just like in
epigraphy (such as INRI = Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudeorum) and I'm not able to
recognize or understand it. Anyone on the list can do such a thing?
