EKT Hypothesis

1996/8/6, posted by Dennis Stallings

My hypothesis is that the concealment system for the VMs is a word game, like Pig Latin. I have devised a homophonic word game that would be less detectable than Pig Latin and would account for the presence of Voynich A and B, the low variety of digraphs (the low second-order entropy of the text), and the (relative) absence of long repeated phrases.

*King Tut*

The system that interests me the most is called King Tut. One makes the following substitutions:

A - a I - i R - rur
B - bub J - jug S - sus
C - cut K - kam T - tut
D - dud L - lul U - u
E - e M - mum V - vuv
F - fuf N - num W - wuv
G - gug O - o Y - yec
H - hush P - pup Z - zuz

"The sunflower is a marvellous plant with powerful virtues that must needs be concealed from the ignorant and uninitiated."

becomes:

"Tuthushe susunumfuflulowuverur isus a mumarurvuvelullulousus puplulanumtut wuvituthush pupowuverurfufulul vuvirurtutuesus tuthushatut mumusustut numeedudsus bube cutonumcutealuledud fufruromum tuthushe igugnumoruranumtut anumdud unuminumitutiatutedud."

*Extended King Tut (EKT)*

With modifications, the King Tut system can account for other properties of the Voynich text. I shall call this modified system Extended King Tut (EKT).
