Can ANYONE translate this POS? MY friend sent it to me and she's teasing me with it. Can anyone even identify it?

Hrm.  Though it was Cherokee, and it has some characters in common, but it has a lot that aren't.  Have you tried a frequency analysis?

If it's a simple substitution code, only two characters appear alone, which suggests (assuming both a straight one-to-one mapping and that it's encoded English) they would be 'A' and 'I'.  If some of the characters stand for sounds (th, sh, ch -- for which there is no single character in English) it becomes more complicated, but it also offers an immediate nominee for the word 'the', as there's a digraph that appears thrice.

It resembles Armenian, but it's not. My guess is that it's a simple substitution cipher. On the 3rd line is a word that starts with two of the same letter. In English (with rare exception), that means it's likely an E or an O. Maybe "oops", since "eels" is unlikely.

And it's not Shavian either; that looks more like the standard Western alphabet.  I've been poking around You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and haven't found it yet.  It is an interesting puzzle, yes.

I dont know but it does have omegas in it. So relation to Ancient Greek? Armenian alphabet was created by the man who created the Gregorian Alphabet, Mesrop Mashtots, which was based off of Ancient Greek.
