Unless I have made errors in the table construction this
is what the start of the first line should be.

'Poi che la Eccellenzia Vostra seguendo'. Unless the
language was known in advance the word splitting would be a tricky part of
the decipherment.

I may have made a mistake in the table as you were correct
up to the start of vostra. If I have then I apologise.

And to answer your question, yes the word boundaries in
the voynichese do not line up with word boundaries in the plain text.
However, in the VMS I am finding that a lot of the time two words seem to be
packed into one VMS word. Whether I am right about the decipherment language
or not I am finding a tight pattern structure that persists throughout the
VMS text. I will be looking into the patterns that Robert Teague has sent me
to see if this helps explain the findings. I feel that the answer is very
close now and if I can map these patterns into a table structure
consistently the answer might just pop up.

Jeff

BTW For anyone that might be confused over the data below
the plain text triplets overlap and once the first plaintext triplet has
been selected its last two letter should overlap the first twqo letters of
the next. So in the words poi che as above, the oi of poi will overlap with
oic, oic with ich etc.

Re: VMs: Italian enciphered in Voynichese (yes you read it right)

is it correct? Word bounds should be
ignored?

I would like someone to try to use the table to decipher it. I will post the
answer once an attempt has been made. You should get some idea of what I am
getting from the manuscript using this method. And no, the plaintext isn't
deciphered from the VMS.

Cipher text

Decryption table
Left column has plaintext triplets followed by
occurance count and ciphertext triplet.
To decode lookup the cipher text triplet in the
right columns and substitute the plaintext triplet.
The method is self checking.
