Just to muddy the waters a bit ... A lot of us have
focused on how to form and explain Voynichese "words".
Ultimately we'll also have to look at the *syntax*, the
arrangement of words. Gabriel Landini and Mark Perakh
have looked at this in detail and it's definitely
there. Its relation to natural languages is uncertain
too. Something else to consider.
