the linked wiki from University of Adelaide is interesting.

this image in particular, about word length is cool.

if you look at it, the Voynich has a peak at 5 letter words. The only language that does something similar is Italian, which has a secondary rise at 5. Latin and Hebrew also have some similarities to the Voynich. Considering where it came from and when, that seems consistent to me? spoiler alert I'm not a linguist.
