About

This site is a collection of information and research about the Voynich manuscript, particularly its language and script. The menu items at the top summarise what I know or believe and is a mixture of my own research and the research of others.

The blog is a record of the research I have undertaken, as it happens and is refined or revised. Some of it can be rather deep, so if you’re new to the manuscript I recommend reading the menu pages at the top first.

If you’re completely new to the Voynich manuscript I recommened reading Rene Zandbergen’s Voynich site first as an introduction.

A Note on Conventions

Text within brackets such as [this] represents the transcription of the Voynich script according to EVA. The use of a dot/full stop/period represents a word break: [n.a] means [n] and [a] separated by a space.

Although fonts do exist for the Voynich script they are not possible to use on this site. You will need to be familiar with the EVA transcription to follow the information here.

Text within slashes such as /this/ represents speech sounds. They should not be taken as specific sounds but rather broad ideas of what kind of sound it might be.

  1. Emma – this is not for publication, but I have no other means to contact you. I write to ask if you happen to know any solid sources for Chagati? I’m interested to know more of the pre-classical phase, formally dated to 1400–1465, though it is said from reference cited in the wiki article, that writer notes:
    [1]
    The so-called Berendei, a 12th-century nomadic Turkic people possibly related to the Cumans, seem also to have spoken Chagatai.

    and [2]

    Ethnologue records the use of the word “Chagatai” in Afghanistan to describe the “Tekke” dialect of Turkmen. Up to and including the eighteenth century, Chagatai was the main literary language in Turkmenistan as elsewhere in Central Asia. While it had some influence on Turkmen, the two languages belong to different branches of the Turkic language family.

    Sorry to trouble you with this – if you feel able to offer some pointers, you’re welcome to email me at my personal email address – diane.odonovan3@gmail.

  2. I am deciphering the Voynich manuscript and received a positive result.
    There is a key to cipher the Voynich manuscript.
    The key to the cipher manuscript placed in the manuscript. It is placed throughout the text. Part of the key hints is placed on the sheet 14. With her help was able to translate a few dozen words that are completely relevant to the theme sections.
    The Voynich manuscript is not written with letters. It is written in signs. Characters replace the letters of the alphabet one of the ancient language. Moreover, in the text there are 2 levels of encryption. I figured out the key by which the first section could read the following words: hemp, wearing hemp; food, food (sheet 20 at the numbering on the Internet); to clean (gut), knowledge, perhaps the desire, to drink, sweet beverage (nectar), maturation (maturity), to consider, to believe (sheet 107); to drink; six; flourishing; increasing; intense; peas; sweet drink, nectar, etc. Is just the short words, 2-3 sign. To translate words with more than 2-3 characters requires knowledge of this ancient language. The fact that some symbols represent two letters. In the end, the word consisting of three characters can fit up to six letters. Three letters are superfluous. In the end, you need six characters to define the semantic word of three letters. Of course, without knowledge of this language make it very difficult even with a dictionary.
    And most important. In the manuscript there is information about “the Holy Grail”.
    I’m willing to share information.
    P.S. there are no letters In the manuscript. Half of the signs are numbers , the other half are abstract signs. The number system is not decimal.
    Nikolai.
