In January, Stephen Bax, a professor of applied linguistics at the University of Bedfordshire, offered what he calls a "provisional partial decoding" of the manuscript. He started with illustrations of seven plants (and one constellation) previously identified by other scholars and then zeroed in on the word in the accompanying text that he believed represented the plant's name. For example, on a page with a plant identified as juniper, he found a word that looked like "oror"-similar to "arar," the Arabic word for juniper. He then marked the symbols in the word "oror" as representing an "ah" and a "ra" sound. In all, Bax says, he was able to decipher 10 words and 14 symbols.
