Good to see new discoveries with the Voynich Manuscript, even if the discovery is just that they think it's not a complete hoax.
I stared at this thing for awhile a couple years ago and made some slight headway. I can tell you right now that there is a language involved in the
VM and not just code, and I don't need a supercomputer to prove it. If you go to the pages in the 70s in the link the OP provided, you'll see circles
with people in bathtubs drawn around them. In the middle are pictures of zodiac sign and a word. Example: pages 70r and 70v. 70r has two fish - pisces
- and the word "mars" - march. 70v has a ram - aries - and the word "abiril" - april. If this is written in code, proper names would also be written
in code. Since they are not, it seems logical that this is written in a language that has adopted the proper names instead of encoding them.
Note: the link in the OP for the VM does not provided all the pages. The one I have downloaded contains pages to support the theory that this portion
is some sort of calender in that there are drawings of 12 different central images that all relate closely to signs of the zodiac and all with names
that closely resemble the 12 calendar months. Each also has 30 or so women and/or men bathing drawn around the outside to represent the days of the
month. Please also note that some pages combine into one month, like 70v and 71r are both for the 'ram - abiril' page.
If the great minds analyzing this text have at least gotten this far, my advice to them would to be to analyze the three aforementioned pages. The
same goes for anyone else here who might be curious.
Do the words on 70r and 70v/71r have any correlation?
If so I would bet that this is the numbering system for the language. You can see plainly that the words are all very similar on these pages which
also supports my theory of this being the numbering system since numbers tend to build on and contain previous numbers.
Thanks OP for the article!
