I Thought of YOU
 
Anyone ever heard of the Voynich Manuscript? My son sent me this link tonight. I had never heard of it before. I told him that some of you could probably solve it :) , you're that good. - Gail

Another theory
 
Maybe it isn't written consistently in the same language. Educated people of that era knew several. The author could be using a phonetic alphabet and the most convenient language to express an idea. That would account for many of the inconsistencies. Some of the letters could also be numbers, which would explain odd repetitions.
