Each symbol has two characters. Every "word", indicated by spaces, is a musical chord. For the first 30 or so pages I can see rythmatic patterns. To me that would indicate either poetry, music or some other format displaying structure. Thereafter more symbols are added one or two at a time every so often. There are certain examples of similar format in modern languages such as vocabulary books for children and, this may be a stretch for some music. For example: This isn't a solution by any stretch of the imagination but something to consider.
One possible interpretation The book, as many say , it looks like a book of botany. When we open a book of botany what do we find?
Description of plants with texts and images. Scientific names and common use of plants. These plants are not common, but they have one thing that is repeated in several pages: It seems that some of the pictures describe how to prepare special baths , uploading some flowers with pollen or substances. Are empty and are filtered with another plant.
They can be different concentrations , each with a different purpose. The compositions included in the later flowers that are empty are described in the penultimate section of the book: AnnaTaliesin - favorite favorite favorite favorite - October 22, Subject: ReBytes - favorite favorite favorite favorite - October 6, Subject: My opinion its no hoax Looking at the proficiency the lettering was made I dint believe its a hoax.
It would take a person months of training to get the lettering so consistent for the whole manuscript. I do believe its a real language. I also do believe it contains information about the diagrams. Trying to disregard the text and only looking at the diagrams will not give much insight since any one drawing can be interpreted a thousand different ways.
The theory of it being a coded text I also disregard since the coding mechanisms for the dated time was primitive but very effective back then. But master cryptographers with computers today will have no problem breaking the code. I believe the reason it is so difficult to get meaning from the text is because the base system of the writing is something that is not known.
This might indicate the "peasant" actually had a high intellect in a remote area who had no access to books or anyone who could write.

Language This in my opinion is not a language whatsoever its a code, although some of the symbols are familiar such as the Greek letter R,T,TH, and many more in lower case.
Also the manuscript has nothing to do with plants its just a means of confusion.

However, he concludes that, if the manuscript is genuine, mental illness or delusion seems to have affected the author. Since the manuscript's modern rediscovery in , there have been a number of claimed decipherings.
One of the earliest efforts to unlock the book's secrets and the first of many premature claims of decipherment was made in by William Romaine Newbold of the University of Pennsylvania.
His singular hypothesis held that the visible text is meaningless itself, but that each apparent "letter" is in fact constructed of a series of tiny markings discernible only under magnification. These markings were supposed to be based on ancient Greek shorthand , forming a second level of script that held the real content of the writing. Newbold claimed to have used this knowledge to work out entire paragraphs proving the authorship of Bacon and recording his use of a compound microscope four hundred years before van Leeuwenhoek.
A circular drawing in the astronomical section depicts an irregularly shaped object with four curved arms, which Newbold interpreted as a picture of a galaxy, which could be obtained only with a telescope. However, Newbold's analysis has since been dismissed as overly speculative  after John Matthews Manly of the University of Chicago pointed out serious flaws in his theory. Each shorthand character was assumed to have multiple interpretations, with no reliable way to determine which was intended for any given case.
Newbold's method also required rearranging letters at will until intelligible Latin was produced. These factors alone ensure the system enough flexibility that nearly anything at all could be discerned from the microscopic markings.
Although evidence of micrography using the Hebrew language can be traced as far back as the ninth century, it is nowhere near as compact or complex as the shapes Newbold made out.
Close study of the manuscript revealed the markings to be artefacts caused by the way ink cracks as it dries on rough vellum. Perceiving significance in these artefacts can be attributed to pareidolia.
Thanks to Manly's thorough refutation, the micrography theory is now generally disregarded.
The Right Key Found , in which he claimed that the book was a scientific diary written by Roger Bacon. Feely's method posited that the text was a highly abbreviated medieval Latin written in a simple substitution cipher. Leonell C. Strong , a cancer research scientist and amateur cryptographer, believed that the solution to the Voynich manuscript was a "peculiar double system of arithmetical progressions of a multiple alphabet". Strong claimed that the plaintext revealed the Voynich manuscript to be written by the 16th-century English author Anthony Ascham , whose works include A Little Herbal , published in Notes released after his [ who?
In , Robert Brumbaugh, a professor of medieval philosophy at Yale University, claimed that the manuscript was a forgery intended to fool Emperor Rudolf II into purchasing it, and that the text is Latin enciphered with a complex, two-step method. In , John Stojko published Letters to God's Eye  in which he claimed that the Voynich Manuscript was a series of letters written in vowelless Ukrainian.
Leo Levitov proposed in his book, Solution of the Voynich Manuscript: He further claimed that Catharism was descended from the cult of Isis. However, Levitov's decipherment has been refuted on several grounds, not least of which is its being unhistorical. Levitov had a poor grasp on the history of the Cathars, and his depiction of Endura as an elaborate suicide ritual is at odds with surviving documents describing it as a fast.
King  , in which they claimed to have translated ten words from the manuscript using techniques similar to those used to successfully translate Egyptian hieroglyphs. They claimed the manuscript to be a treatise on nature, in a Near Eastern or Asian language, but no full translation was made before his death in In September , television writer Nicholas Gibbs claimed to have decoded the manuscript as idiosyncratically abbreviated Latin.
Medieval scholars judged Gibbs' hypothesis to be not novel. Professor Greg Kondrak, a natural language processing expert of the University of Alberta , together with his graduate student Bradley Hauer, used artificial intelligence in an attempt to decode the manuscript.
However, the team admitted that experts in medieval manuscripts who reviewed the work were not convinced. Many books and articles have been written about the manuscript.
Copies of the manuscript pages were made by alchemist Georgius Barschius in and sent to Athanasius Kircher, and later by Wilfrid Voynich. In , the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library made high-resolution digital scans publicly available online, and several printed facsimiles appeared.

I am not a professional linguist or code breaker. I was curious about this manuscript and I wanted just to get an impression what it looks like. Namely, page 68r is wrong. These are, actually, pages 68v1,68v2. Page 68v is, actually page 68v3. You were right, I updated the PDF so those pages are included now.
