   When I looked at Chuck Lindsey's word, my first reaction was that

it was probably a misprint.  That was because reduplications don't

repeat anything after the vowel portion of the syllable.  It turns

out that that generalization stands up -- in spite of the occurrence

of "...tzintzin...".  Andrews points out (p. 296 [at least]) that

"piltzin" is lexicalized and embedded in "-tzin", so "-tzintzin"

Voynich Nahuatl proposal

Dear Nahuatleros

I have taken a good look at the new book Unraveling the Voynich Codex by Janick and Tucker. It argues for a Nahuatl element in the mysterious Voynich Manuscript. The proposal is very weak in my opinion, since the proposed readings of the Voynich letters produce only gibberish if read with the proposed Nahuatl values.
