f75r cures, pregnancy, life and death – Latin Plainchant

May 15, 2012 3 comments

Here is a result obtained using a Genetic Algorithm to match the text on f75r to Latin. The training corpus I used was a large file of Latin plainchant (the idea being that repeated “words” in the VMs show similarities to chant).

First, here is the folio with the translated words overlain in red:

Folio f75r decrypted as Latin plainchant

The genetic algorithm searched for a set of glyphs that each matched to a pair of Latin letters.

Most of the decrypted words are valid Latin and match words in the plaintext I used to train the GA. Some are Latin but do not appear in the plaintext. The other, invalid, words could be caused by errors in the pair matching.

Or the whole thing could well be nonsense! This is likely – I asked Joel Stevens to translate some of the Latin, and here is what he said:

On first inspection, it seems to be random non-sense. For example:
recita lugete vena dans veta ia debent lustrata lite

Would mean: Recite! Mourn! Blood-vessel giving. Forbid! Oh, they owe things that were purified by the lawsuit.

I’m not really sure how to make sense of it. I don’t see anything that stands out as an obvious sentence. Maybe some words are filler and need to be dropped… or maybe there is a hidden order that needs to be found (assuming these are the correct words).

Here is the Latin:

Decryption of folio f75r using Letter Pair matching

Folio f75r from the Voynich "Balneological" Folios

Letter Pair Mapping with Two Nulls

Following an idea from Knox, where Voynich words are constructed from codes that represent plaintext letter pairs.

First Result

These results are from a Genetic Algorithm that uses a Latin dictionary to match 188 of the 353 VMs words on f75r. This is an unusually good score compared with what I am used to. The table below shows the relationship between plaintext Latin and Voynich characters.
