View Full Version : Is this a Cryptogram?
08-18-2012, 07:44 AM
I have been working on this for some time. I am ready to give up.
Is it even a cryptogram?
Anybody that can solve it and tell me how, would allow me to grow some of my hair back. :D

Hmm... well at first I thought it would be a fairly easy digraphic substitution, but
that didn't quite work. Do you have any more information or context? Where did
this come from(for instance)?
I'll play around with it some more

The letters seem to be in two kinds of pairs, N- or O-. That's as far as I got, because the resulting words max out at 3 letters long. Is there any chance that they are numbers, and this is a math problem?

Where did it come from? Was it on this site? I reads almost like a child's rhyme of some kind.

Could it be the lyrics to a rap song?

Its not a substitution cypher
too many instances of the same letter
i agree with Lurker ...it looks mathematical.
its not from this site, Iltquilt.
it might be nonsensical though.

Not sure why you dismiss a substitution cipher so readily. There are 10 distinct digraphs. So, replacing them with the digits 0-9 seems reasonable, although I cannot make out anything useful with the numbers - yet. I'm still waiting for additional information - and there must be some - even if that's so-and-so made it up. It's fairly easy to construct a nearly impossible to solve cipher for "short" messages.
