Sections in the Voynich Manuscript
The Voynich manuscript contains exotic illustrations of unidentifiable plants, cosmological charts, astronomical symbols and bathing women. Based on these illustrations it is possible to split the manuscript into multiple sections.
Typical for the sections using Currier A are word types similar to "daiin" and "chol" and typical for sections using Currier B are word types similar to "chedy" and types starting with "qo". The following table lists the number of times some key word types did occur for each section of the VMS.
The sections are orderes in a way that two sections with similar frequencies follow each other. This way a steady development from Currier A to Currier B is revealed. It is possible to illustrate this process with the following graphs of similar word types for each section.
To highlight words similar to "daiin", "ol" and "chedy" graph coloring is used. All nodes for a word that contains the glyph "i" are orange. Nodes for a word ending in "d" or "y" are purple. Nodes for words containing "ol", "or", "ar", "al" or end with "am" or "os" are green. All other nodes are colored using blue.
