Can you help me? Perhaps it's the translation, but I've read and re-read
the paper several times and I still fail to understand how you derived the
binary sequences which your paper compares between languages.
That is, which letters (in Voynichese, or even German) correspond to '0'
and which letters correspond to '1'? In the natural languages, are these

About "Pegasus", the crease is not real and it seems to be a bump, which

With luck, we should be able to see a better quality image of this page
within a few days, and hopefully we will be able to use them to resolve
many transcription issues like this.
I recall, to conclude, the main point of this article concerns the binary
sequences of each language, which give us information about origin of the
However, "Pegasus" is noted as being plaintext, and as being strongly
supportive of the Slavonic hypothesis in general. I still think that the
