I know about this problem and I am looking to resolve it satisfactorily.

Well there are various points where I have seen how the groupings I have
assumed breakdown into smaller clusters when examining the VMS text.
Also paragraphs starting with f gallows are not evenly distributed within
the VMS. This new attempt came about through examining only pages
that had paragraphs beginning with EVA f. The f paragraphs appear often
up until f47r. They do not reappear until until f100r. I have seen
that is consistent within the f paragraphs that is different to paragraphs
starting with any other gallows. This could explain the intermingled nature
of languages A & B in some parts of the VMS and why language B? seems
more dominant elsewhere.
