Word Structure

1. The characters [a, y] are variants which depend on their position in a word and following character. In middle positions they may also sometimes be deleted. Together these three expressions make up a composite character which is used in the same positions as [o] and with it form a particular class of character.

2. Most words in the Voynich manuscript can be broken down into one or more sections each containing one of the two characters [a, y] or [o]. The other characters are typically arranged within a section in specific ways. When a word contains multiple sections their composition and position in a word are also specific.

3. The length of [e] sequences ([e], [ee], [eee]) is typically shorter after a bench glyph [ch, sh] or a bench gallows glyph [ckh, cth, cfh, cph].
